Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher, with their talent for putting together clever and innovative programs, have established themselves as one of the world's top piano duos. Like no other piano duo, their repertoire ranges from Bach to contemporary music in all its facets. Their collaboration at the piano is evidence that the two expert pianists are nothing short of musical soul mates. The vast breadth of the duo's expressiveness has garnered it invitations to various festivals and concert halls such as the Cologne Philharmonie, Berlin Philharmonie, Vienna Konzerthaus, Cité de la Musique Paris, Salzburg Festival, Lucerne Festival and Wigmore Hall London and has resulted in partnerships with renowned conductors such as Emanuel Krivine, Kent Nagano, Andrej Boreyko, Peter Eötvös, and Zubin Mehta. Their orchestra projects include concerts with the SWR Symphonieorchester, DSO Berlin, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, RSO Wien, and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. Their keen ability to conceive carefully considered programs is also evident in their numerous recordings which appear, among others, in their own series on Neos. On Fantasias, they perform compositions written by Henry Purcell (arranged by György Kurtág), Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (arranged by Ferruccio Busoni), Franz Schubert, Alexander Scriabin, and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
