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 and “the most dynamic duo of this generation” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “rock stars of the classical music world” (Miami Herald), and “the very model of complete 21st-century musicans” (The Washington Post), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo aims to make classical music a relevant and powerful force around the world. Their recent albums on the Steinway Label (When Words Fade, An Amadeus Affair, and The Art of Bach) were all released to critical acclaim and have spent dozens of weeks at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts, while their Emmy-nominated, self-produced music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube and at international film festivals. Highlights of the 2016/17 season include tours throughout North America, Asia, and Europe; appearances with the San Fransico Symphony, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Chicago Sinfonietta, and more; serving as webcast hosts for the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition; and the DVD release of their ambitious—and literally explosive—music film, The Rite of Spring.

Mr. Anderson and Ms. Roe met in 2000 as freshmen at The Juilliard School and formed their dynamic musical partnership shortly thereafter. They have since toured extensively, with notable recitals in Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Estonia, Israel, and most major US cities, as well as in nearly every New York City venue imaginable, from Carnegie Hall to children’s hospitals. 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 mostly Mozart Festival, the Gilmore and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Festivals, and dozens of summer chamber music festivals. In 2015, Anderson & Roe premiered Brahms’ Double Concerto in their arrangement for two pianos and orchestra with the Performance Santa Fe Symphony. Other orchestral engagements include appearances with the Boulder, Calgary, Chautauqua, Hartford, Liverpool, San Francisco, Waco, and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestras, among others, and with members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. In recognition of their singular vision for the advancement of classical music, they have been invited to present at numerous international leader symposiums, including EG (Entertainment Gathering), the Imagine Solutions Conference, Chicago Ideas Week, and Mexico’s Think Tank Festival for Brilliant Minds. Their scores are published by Alfred Music on the “Anderson & Roe Duos & Duets Series” and by Awkward Fermata Press.

Mr. Anderson and Ms. Roe left an indelible impression at The Juilliard School, where they both earned their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. A live performance by the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo was handpicked to appear on the Sounds of Juilliard CD celebrating the school’s centenary. In 2006, given only two months to compose and prepare, they gave the world premiere of their own composition “Four Fantasies on Themes from Star Wars,” replacing John Williams on Juilliard’s “Cinema Serenades” concert in Alice Tully Hall. Additionally, the two directed the groundbreaking project “Life Between the Keys,” an event that involved the entire Juilliard Piano Class of 2004; this performance project celebrated the class’s unique camaraderie and chronicled its Juilliard experience in an all-American program of piano music.

Anderson and Roe, Piano DuoAnderson & Roe believe strongly in the communicative potential of music, and their performances, compositions, websites, videos, recordings, and writings all serve this mission, bringing joy to people around the world. As the Northwest Reverb recently stated, “[Anderson & Roe] swept the audience into a cheering mass of humanity, making a strong case that playing piano is the most fun thing that two people could ever do together.”

Greg Anderson & Elizabeth Joy Roe are Steinway Artists.
