INTERNATIONAL PIANO QUARTET
The International Piano Quartet was founded in 1998 by two prizewinning piano teams of the Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition, the Bergmann Piano Duo (Canada/Germany) and the Piano Duo Van Veen (Holland). The four pianists began their work together in preparation for a Stravinsky Festival held at Florida International University in Miami. This exciting musical collaboration culminated with an acclaimed performance of Les Noces under the direction of Robert Craft. The success of the teams joining forces prompted them to pursue this unusual ensemble further, which has since led to performances both in North America and Europe. In addition to exploring the great wealth of works written for one piano eight hands, two pianos eight hands, and four pianos, IPQ also incorporates their own arrangements and transcriptions into their performing repertoire.
