Mill Valley Chamber Music Society presents ZOFO Duet

ZOFO Duet has electrified audiences from Carnegie Hall to Osaka with their dazzling artistry and outside-the-box thematic programming for piano four-hands.

ZOFO is an acronym for “20 Finger Orchestra,” with “ZO” representing the number 20 and FO “Finger Orchestra.”
Grammy nominated, internationally acclaimed ZOFO Duet, featuring solo pianists Keisuke Nakagoshi and Eva-Maria Zimmermann, perform a program including Gershwin's "Cuban Overture" on Sunday, March 23 in Mill Valley.
One of a rare handful of international professional ensembles focusing exclusively on piano duets, this award-winning, Grammy nominated duo is rediscovering and energetically performing hidden gems of the traditional one piano, four-hands repertoire with a strong dedication to 20th and 21st Century works.
Since its inception in 2009, ZOFO Duet achievements include Grammy nominations for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance and Producer of the Year for its first album "Mind Meld."
ZOFO Duet made its Carnegie Hall concert debut in 2010; took First Place at the 2010 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition; and as the only piano duo elevated to the final round, Nakagoshi and Zimmermann were named Finalists at 2011 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition.
Based in San Francisco, California, ZOFO Duet are blazing a bold new path for one-piano, four-hands ensembles by commissioning and performing new duet works each year, including their first major commissions from acclaimed composers Gabriela Lena Frank and Allen Shawn. ZOFO Duet is a fiscally sponsored Affiliate of The San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music.
