Mariko and Volker Eckerle founded the Eckerle Piano Duo in 2006. Alongside core works from piano duet repertoire, the German-Japanese duo regularly performs rarely heard works together with other musicians, actors and ballet companies. Its cleverly conceived concert programmes have proved very popular with both audiences and critics. The duo also present concert lectures, and tailored programmes for children and families.

The duo’s highly acclaimed debut album was released on Naxos in 2009, and includes waltzes by Wolfgang Rihm, Max Reger and Sigfrid Karg-Elert and a world premiere recording of a work by Antonín Dvořák. Leading German radio stations such as Deutschlandradio Kultur, Südwestrundfunk, Hessische Rundfunk, Norddeutsche Rundfunk and Radio Berlin-Brandenburg have featured the album, and it was praised in Japanese magazine Record Geijutsu.

In addition to giving concerts throughout Europe, the duo is a regular guest in Japan and performs at numerous festivals.
