Staying at home?

Anton, Rita, Ertan, and Jennifer rehearsing responsibly

Like all of you, we are practicing social distancing during this time in history.  Our live concerts may have been postponed for the near future, but there is plenty to work on! Here we are with the members of our quartet, QuartetES, working on a new commission by composer Robert Carl for a project of the American Composers Alliance. Come on over to our MP2 Facebook page to see clips of duos and new arrangements Rita is working on.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE!!

THREADED SKY

It's finally here!  Our long-awaited 4th CD, featuring the complete violin-viola duo music of Augusta Read Thomas, a never-before recorded duo of Bright Sheng, a new transcription of the haunting "Ciaconna in Memoria Giovanni Paolo II" by Krzysztof Penderecki, and a brand new work by up-and-coming Iranian composer Mani Mirzaee.  Shout out to Bradley Sayles, producer and Andy Bradley, engineer.

 

Come with us to Bosnia-Herzegovina!

 

UPDATE: The Director of Music and More is still waiting to see if the festival will be held this summer.  Check back for updates.

Update 3/21/20:  Like many of us around the globe, we are under a quarantine order from our local government.  Staying home is truly the best way to “flatten the curve” and reduce the strain on all of our infrastructures.  We do not know when our live performances will resume, since many were international as well as in different states with different quarantine orders.  We are fortunate in that there are still things we can do artistically, so please bear with us as we upload new content on various social media and this website.  Additionally, our 4th CD is finally in production, and we will release tracks of it to hopefully provide some entertainment for this difficult time!  Stay safe everyone!
