About Us


Alisa Yajima - Ádám Baráz piano duo

Adam Baraz composer

The piano duo was founded in Budapest in September, 2016. Since the first joint concert they have given many concerts in Hungary and Slovakia. Their repertoire is very wide. From classical works through romantic compositions to contemporary music for four hands and two pianos, there are many well-known and less-known works.

"We are primarily trying to compile a program that will win professional musicians, and also music-loving and lay audience. Now, of course, we can associate it with a regular repertoire, but in concerts, the audience can hear really special music. " (Adam Baraz)
