They will be in concert at Christ Church, Old Market Avenue, Chichester on Friday, July 14 at 7pm.

Maria said: “It will be an intense and exciting evening of Russian music that will encompass the piano duet, duo, and solo. To open the concert, I will be joined by my brother, Kenji Luc, for Shostakovich's Cello Sonata. The programme also includes a selection of Rachmaninov's Études-Tableaux, which explore the full range of piano technique and expression. I played a couple of these recently in the Norah Sande Award (an international piano competition in Eastbourne) in which I received First Prize! The evening will culminate in a performance of Stravinsky's monumental The Rite of Spring, arranged for piano duet by the composer. This legendary work provoked the infamous riots in Paris - at its premiere in 1913 - and is today as startling and shocking as ever. For this, I will be joined by Wyn Chan - pianist and fellow student at the Royal Northern College of Music (and my boyfriend!)”

Tickets £10; students £5; children free.
