Hailed by the San Francisco Examiner for their “stellar musicianship, technical mastery, and awe-inspiring artistry,” pianists Christina and Michelle Naughton have captivated audiences around the world with their four-hands/two-piano performances, and their musical communication, as featured by the Wall Street Journal in their own words, “There are times I forget we are two people playing together.”
Twin sisters trained at the Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music, the Naughtons made their European debut at Herkulesaal in Munich, where the Sueddeutsche Zeitung proclaimed them “an outstanding piano duo.” They made their Asian debut with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, where the Sing Tao Daily said of their performance, “Joining two hearts and four hands at two grand pianos, the Naughton sisters created an electrifying and moving musical performance.” An appearance with the Philadelphia Orchestra led the Philadelphia Inquirer to characterize their playing as “paired to perfection,” while the Saarbrücker Zeitung exclaimed, “this double star could soon prove to be a supernova.”
