“I’m ready to put them on a level with some of the greatest piano duos of our time…They have to be heard to be believed” said the Washington Post of the Naughton sisters. Identical twins, Christina and Michelle have dazzled audiences the world over. And even they are sometimes amazed at the musical bond between them. Says Christina, “There are times I forget we are two people playing together.”
- They are sisters who, in 2019, became the first piano duo to receive an Avery Fisher Career Grant.
- They made their recital debut at Kennedy Center and their orchestral debut at the Mann Center with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
- They are graduates of the Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music.
- They are sought after around the world as soloists but we get them both in a piano four hands program to include Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite and Aaron Copland’s Variations on a Shaker Melody, aka Simple Gifts.
What is Piano Four Hands? A piano duet involving two players playing the same piano at the same time.
