William Terwilliger, violin
Andrew Cooperstock, piano
The award-winning Opus Two has been internationally recognized for its “divine phrases, impelling rhythm, elastic ensemble and stunning sounds,” as well as its commitment to expanding the violin-piano duo repertoire. Since winning the 1993 United States Information Agency’s Artistic Ambassador Auditions, violinist William Terwilliger and pianist Andrew Cooperstock have concertized extensively in major cities on five continents.
Champions of American music, Opus Two has recorded Aaron Copland’s complete works for violin and piano, Robert Starer’s Duo, Sonata Lunaris by John Fitz Rogers, and chamber music for piano and strings by Lowell Liebermann. Their recording dedicated to the music of Paul Schoenfield won a major grant from the American Music Center’s Aaron Copland Recording Fund.
