THE LATSOS PIANO DUO
Vienna-based Georgian-American pianist/composer Giorgi Latso and Russian pianist Anna Fedorova-Latso are winners of international competitions and highly regarded piano virtuosos on the international classical music scene. As The Latsos Piano Duo since 2013, they have performed four-hand piano recitals and concertos for two pianos with orchestras in Europe, Russia, America, and Asia.
Russian-born pianist Anna Fedorova-Latso graduated from the State Glinka Conservatory in Nizhny Novgorod, and is First Prize winner of international piano competitions in Russia, Italy, and Greece.
Giorgi’s 2010 appearance in London’s Wigmore Hall included the world premiere of his composition Cyber Moment for violin and piano, which can be seen on YouTube.
