The most dynamic piano duo of this generation.
Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe met in 2000 as freshman at the Juilliard School and formed their amazing partnership soon after. They have toured to sold-out houses across the globe and amazed audiences with their musical diversity and intense live performances. Widely known for their daring four-hand piano technique and their genre-busting, boundary-crossing arrangements of classical and popular favorites, from Brahms and Debussy to Michael Jackson and John Lennon, they are sure to delight all who hear them.
Don’t miss this electrifying duo!
“Believe all the hype: Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe—more famously called Anderson and Roe—are electric. At Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, this piano duo did more than celebrate the launch of their new album; they fashioned an entirely new concert experience.” -Backtrack
