The duo has recently presented their programme, based on original works for piano and organ and transcriptions, in music festivals in Russia and Serbia.
Ksenia and Olga are also pursuing a solo career in piano and organ respectively. Ksenia is the winner and prize winner of many international competitions, including the Rakhmaninov Piano Music Competition in Saint-Petersburg, and continues her studies with Professor Aquiles Delle Vigne. Besides a piano degree, Olga holds a Master’s degree in organ and is the First Prize winner of the Odoevsky Organ Competition in Moscow.
