For the last two years I have been working regularly with Massimiliano, Master student in my Piano Class at the Amsterdam Conservatory, and Eleonora with the utmost joy and satisfaction and I consider them very gifted and inspiring musicians.

Their playing is characterized by a touching sensibility, musical integrity, a strong and profound personal vision on the scores they perform, together with a high degree of technical control and a remarkable concentration.

The energy, passion and dedication the TulipDuo show to discover, explore and communicate music in all its aspects is exemplary.

There is a strong mutual understanding about the characterisation, and the shaping of musical structures, and Eleonora and Massimiliano are capable to blend and forge their individual personalities into one new unique musical voice. These qualities enable them to convey their ideas convincingly and to inspire, move and delight their audience.
