Andrey Tchekmazov and Irina Nuzova met at the famous Gnessin School in Moscow when they were teenagers.
They immigrated to the US in 1992 where both continued their studies at Juilliard. The duo successfully performed in the US and in 2001 won first prize at the Vittorio Gui International Chamber Music Competition in Florence, Italy, followed by the top prize and Premio della Critica at the Premio Trio di Trieste Competition also in Italy.
After 20 years Andrey and Irina are delighted to reunite for this special event presenting traditional cello-piano repertoire – Beethoven, Schumann, and Rachmaninov, interspersed with gems of the recently discovered early 20th-century African American composer William Grant Still, as well as living composers – Kevin Puts and Margarita Zelenaia.
