Katia and Marielle Labeque

The extraordinary pianists, Katia and Marielle Labeque are known not only for the seamless ensemble of their playing, but also for their superlative musicianship and extraordinary scope of repertoire which ranges from Bach, Mozart and Schubert to Stravinsky, Gershwin, Bernstein and the avant-garde composers of the 20th century. Born on the Basque coast of France, the Labeque sisters were taught by their Italian mother, a well-known teacher and musician. The Labeques' career developed into a dynamic partnership that is acclaimed internationally by critics and audiences alike.
