A few words about the pianist The two artists, the Russian Elina Linchevskaya and the Czech Zbynek Maruska, originate from the same generation of pianists who came through the disciplined and structured musical education that was traditionally taught and made their countries famous for.
Their studies at the Prague Musical Academy, the Russian Academy of Music and the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, enabled them to develop substantial recital activities as soloists as well as play with orchestras such as the Prague Symphony Orchestra, Plzenska Filharmonie and other well-known musical ensembles of chamber music such as the Prague Mozart Quintet.
Having both gone through the explosive and enthusiastic world of the skilful ‘young talent’, to that of the thoughtful and mature musician who expresses the European musical thought, currently transmit this thought to the young musicians they teach.
The common aspects of their artistic careers as well as character traits, were essential ingredients for the creation of a close and fruitful cooperation between them, that has led to the setting up of a chamber music group, which aims to demonstrate the completeness in expression and fullness of sound of the pianoforte, and at the same time offer to the music loving public, the pleasure of enjoying worthy musical presentations.
