The duo was born in the city of Lyon with a family of pianists. Svetlana Eganian and Yolande Kouznetsov, respectively mother and daughter, are two concert pianists whose brilliant paths have continually crossed to finally form this four-handed piano ensemble and two pianos.  


The special complicity of this duo is the result of constant collaboration in life and in work.


Svetlana Eganian, laureate of the prestigious Moscow Conservatory, professor at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon, President and Artistic Director of several International piano competitions, is invited around the world for juries of international competitions, master classes and concerts. She passed on her passion, her know-how and her teaching to her daughter from a very young age.


Yolande Kouznetsov did all her musical studies in her hometown, at the regional conservatory and at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon, where she brilliantly obtained her master's degrees in performing musician and pedagogy. Winner of several international piano competitions, she performs in concerts across Europe solo and with various groups. She teaches in Beaune.


The result of personal research, their first album is dedicated to the well-known and lesser-known repertoire of four-handed piano from the Romantic period and the 20th century. A section entirely devoted to the waltz also highlights each composer's approach to this form of dance.  Thus some “classics” such as the Fantasy by Franz Schubert sit alongside pieces like the Norwegian Dances by Edward Grieg or the Valse Masquerade by Aram Katchatourian and La Valse by Maurice Ravel.


Through conference concerts, educational concerts and master classes, they share their complicity, their commitment and their common passion with young and old audiences.
