Transcriptions for Two Pianos  from the World of Opera

Lefki Karpodini & Michael Brownlee Walker

A NIGHT AT THE OPERA takes us on a journey through some of the best known and most loved works of the operatic repertoire. It is a celebration of the passion and drama, and the timeless melodies found in this genre - performed on two pianos. 

From Mozart's Magic Flute Overture to Gershwin's Porgy & Bess, the programme consists of orchestral music and arias from a few operatic masterpieces.

“A great piano duo- a species facing extinction in Greece- that we very much look forward to listening to again! “
Y. Svolos | Efsyn Newspaper

“Two pianos are always exciting, especially if played by Lefki Karpodini and Michael Brownlee Walker. An evening full of challenges, which passed without anyone being aware of the difficulties, as the duo Karpodini-Walker was as always very well prepared and perfectly synchronized.” 
N.  Dontas | Kathimerini Newspaper

Greek pianist Lefki Karpodini and Zimbabwean pianist Michael Brownlee Walker started collaborating as a piano duo in 2013 and since then have given numerous recitals at halls around Greece. They are renowned for their interesting and exciting concert programs which include not only the standard repertoire for two pianos and piano duet but also lesser known pieces and composers.
