THIS IS OUR STORY

The Latsos Piano Duo, recent winner of the Beverly Hills National Auditions, has been praised for its “brilliance and stylistic insight” by Los Angeles Weekly.

 

The duo was enthusiastically formed in 2014 by pianists Giorgi Latso and his wife Anna Fedorova-Latso. Since then they have showcased a true passion, deep maturity and sensitivity in their interpretations. The Latsos are a favorite among many concert organizers and promoters with the Internationale Chopin-Gesellschaft calling their performances “thrilling and flamboyant” and the MTNA Society hails their "intelligence, liveliness and enormous charm’'

The duo performs at renowned concert halls across Europe, America and Western Asia and the Middle East. Asia Pacific Art Press hailed them for being “as expressive as they are technically perfect”  and International Piano Magazine calls the duet “Alluring, Thrilling, Inspirational". Recent festivals include Asia Pacific Music Festival, Chopin Music Festival, International Classical Concerts, Schubertiade Music Festival, the Osterfestival Tirol, the Aspen Music Festival, the Ruhr Piano Festival, Steinway Festival, etc. Moreover, the duo has been recently invited by legendary pianist Maria João Pires to perform at the Belgais Center for Arts in Portugal.

 

The Latsos have performed and recorded a number of unusual and largely unknown treasures from the duo-piano repertoire, including all the Schubert duets and duos. “The Latsos shine in enchantingly intimate dialogue and impress with their expression of emotional unrest” as German Kreiszeitung describes them. The Latsos are often guests on radios such as K-USC Radio, “Classic FM” Sunday Live, NDR Kultur, America Matters, KCKQ-AM 1180, WAMU 88.5 Washington's NPR station, KKNX Classic Hits, Adagio FM, and many more.
One of their recent concert presentations held at the historic Doheny Estate & Gardens as part of the Music in the Mansion Series was filmed by Beverly Hills Warner Cable Television and live-streamed worldwide on BHTV10 Channel.

Through commissioning numerous compositions and collaboration with other artistic genres, Latsos has expanded the boundaries of piano-duo presentation. They have also arranged for 2 pianos and four-hands transcriptions from a selected American movie scores by the celebrated composers such as John Williams, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, John Sousa, etc. and has been hailed "one of the finest transcribers of our time" in the European press.

Giorgi and Anna Latso combine performance and teaching. As music educators, they have presented master classes and lectures at a number of universities in Europe, Russia, Asia, as well as across the United States and regularly invited to perform at prestigious music halls and scholarly conferences worldwide as well as served as judges at various international, national and regional piano competitions. The duo also supports the mission of charities by organizing and performing benefit concerts each year. They often offer concert performances for non-profit organizations and institutions that serve underprivileged communities, children with special needs, hospital patients, and the elderly.

Since 2023 they have been officially designated and conferred as Steinway Ensemble Artist by Steinway & Sons, New York City. In 2024 they created Amadeus International Foundation with the mission to recognize and nurture young and talented pianists. The pair have been serving as Interim Artistic Directors since founding the organization.
