Anderson & Roe Piano Duet

Known for their adrenalized performances, original compositions, and notorious music videos, Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe are revolutionizing the piano duo experience for the 21st century. Described as “the intense synchronization of genius” (ThirdCoast Digest) and “the most dynamic duo of this generation” (San Francisco Classical Voice), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo aims to make classical music a relevant and powerful force around the world.

Together they have appeared on MTV’s Total Request Live, NPR’s All Things Considered and From the Top, APM’s Performance Today, the Cliburn Concert Series, the Gilmore and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Festivals, and dozens of summer chamber music festivals. Their album, When Words Fade (Steinway Label), was released to critical acclaim in 2012 and spent over a dozen weeks at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts, while their Emmy-nominated, self-produced music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube.

Mr. Anderson and Ms. Roe met at the Juilliard School, where they both earned their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

… an electrifying performance that swept the audience into a cheering mass of humanity…
