The Duo Fortin-Poirier has been heralded as one of the most promising piano duos of its generation. With an intuitive musicianship, this young duo has an extraordinarily natural partnership that has quickly garnered acclaim. Their concert program titled Mémoires, features works for one piano, four hands from across the classical, tango, and ragtime genres. Exploring the theme of memories, the program weaves between the intensity of Piazzolla's tangos, the lyricism of Rachmaninov, and the liveliness of Samuel Barber. Mémoires is a concert that blends hard-driving rhythm with sweet nostalgia, resonating with audiences who will remember the dynamism of Duo Fortin-Poirier.
