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.


La Fiammata (it.): the burst of flame.

As the Grand Prix Winners of the Canadian Music Competition in 2017, La Fiammata made its orchestral debut with Orchestre de la Francophonie and have gone on to top prizes at the 2019 Suzana Szorenyi International Piano Duo Competition in Romania, the 2018 Northwest International Piano Ensemble Competition in Vancouver, BC, and dozens of other triumphs and awards. The duo just won second prize in Munich’s ARD International Music Competition.
