Guest Soloists

Naira Perdu | Vicente Prieto

Piano duet

At the same time as their career as soloists in which both have many international awards in Spain, Belgium, Italy, Portugal and
Russia, since 2011 Naira and Vicente have performed numerous piano recitals for four hands, as well as concertos for two
pianos and orchestra: Concerto for 2 pianos in C minor BWV by Bach with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Elche, “The Carnival of
the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saëns and Concerto for 2 pianos K.365 by Mozart with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Murcia.
In 2016 they were selected to participate with a scholarship at the Tel Hai International Piano Festival (Israel), where they
received guidance from the Kanazawa-Admony duo and in 2017 they participated in the “world premiere” of a choreography
by Ivan Vassiliev, with the first dancers of the Bolshoi Theater of Moscow at the Auditorio Víctor Villegas in Murcia.
Prieto and Perdu are two different but complementary pianists who coincide in their tireless search for a greater connection with
the public through concert formats that contain an innovative ingredient, without altering the integrity of the repertoire they are
passionate about.
