This week on Thursdays @ Three, tune in for an encore broadcast featuring 20 Digitus Duo–selected by Artslandia magazine as one of their top 50 favorite artists. Pianists Maria Garcia and Momoko Muramatsu (Puerto Rican and Japanese by way of El Salvador, respectively) perform a largely Latin-based program, as well as Darius Milhaud’s “The Ox on the Roof”.
About 20 Digitus Duo:
Maria and Momoko met during undergraduate studies at New England Conservatory of Music. Since their debut as a duo in 2014, 20 Digitus Duo has been hailed by the press as “Dynamite”, “Intrepid” and “Impressive”. Together they explore the classical standards but also the vast repertoire of their shared Latin American musical heritage, and are deeply committed to working with living composers in creating new works for the medium commissioning works from composers like Ken Selden, Dag Gabrielsen and Charles Copeland. Their goal is to create exciting musical experiences that include classical/contemporary/rock audiences and offer an eclectic choice of music in collaboration with other art forms such as film, visual arts, poetry and dance.
