The piano duo "Goffredo Petrassi" was created in March with roots in the great pianistic school of Lya De Barberiis, after the tradition of Alfredo Casella, with origins in the great French schools of Debussy, Ravel and Fauré. The two artists met each other in 2001 at one of the annual courses in top-level coaching in piano by Lya De Barberiis at the "Benedetto Marcello" music conservatory in Venice. Since then, each pursued their careers as soloist and chamber music pianists until they decided to form their duo. As well as playing the piano with two pairs of hands, they plan to play on two pianos, with, and without, an orchestra. The premiere of their duo took place in Lisbon, in April of this year, with a concert performed by the Associação Ginasio Opera at the Palácio de Foz in Oporto, to critical acclaim from the audience. Next the duo played at the Roman Castles (Teatro Petrolini de Castel Gandolfo and Vila Tuscolana de Frascati) and in Sicily. This concert ends a tour that has included performances in Italy, in Foligno at the Auditorio "San Domenico" de Foligno, and at the Fundição "Libero Bizarri" in San Benedetto del Tronto and also at the Fundição "Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina”.
