This week on Thursdays@Three, we welcome award-winning Canadian piano duo La Fiammata. Made up of best friends Linda Ruan and Charissa Vandikas, the duo has been praised for their “dizzying musicality” (Süddeutsche Zeitung).
These dynamic pianists are a delight and bring a vibrant, sensitive elegance to their performances. Tune in at 89.9 FM in Portland or anywhere online via our live player.
You can also hear them live on Sunday, December 12, 2021, at 4:00 PM PT, as part of Portland Piano International‘s Rising Stars series.
