Zofo’s name is shorthand for “20-Finger Orchestra” and they truly make use of the piano to emulate a brilliantly full orchestral sound. One of only a handful of duos worldwide devoted exclusively to piano duets, Zofo is blazing a bold new path for four-hands groups by focusing on contemporary repertoire and commissioning new works. Hear them perform two symphonic transcriptions, Beethoven’s symphonies no. 4 and no. 6, with precision, technique, and spontaneity that will have you listening to both Beethoven’s music and the piano itself in a new way.
