Ambra Albek, violin/viola
Fiona Albek, piano

Ambra and Fiona Albek are identical twin sisters from Lugano, Switzerland, who together form the Albek Duo, Ambra on violin and viola and Fiona on piano. Their impressive concert career has taken them throughout Europe, North and South America and Australia, and their recent CD South of the Alps has received wide acclaim. After early studies in Lugano, they both graduated with honours from the Musikhochschule in Zürich: Ambra from Rudolf Koelman’s violin class and Wendy Champney’s viola class and Fiona from the noted Friedemann Rieger’s piano chamber music class. They then attended Narciso Masi’s chamber music classes at the International Academy in Imola, Italy, where they graduated with masters’ degrees. Advanced study included work with such chamber specialists as Alberto Lysy, Emanuel Hurwitz and Robert Cohen as well as with Gérard Poulet and Paul Badura-Skoda. The Albek Duo regularly performs at music festivals and cultural events where they have performed a number of pieces specially written for them. Most recently this has included a series of Opera Fantasies composed by Alessandro Lucchetti and the Gemini Concerto by American composer William Perry, of which they gave the première in the United States in May 2010.
