Biography

Founded in 2013 by pianists Sónia Amaral and Patrícia Ventura, Kla-Vier Duo is one of the Portuguese piano duos that has been working regularly since its formation, maintaining a concert schedule that allows it to be constantly updated and that it has been developing in a growing sense, both nationally and internationally. The Kla-Vier Duo bases its program on a repertoire essentially from the 20th and 21st century, covering a wide range of trends, aesthetics and composers such as Ligeti, Kurtág, Pärt, Berio or Hindemith, but also going to look for the reference works of the repertoire for this formation, like those of Ravel, Poulenc or Debussy.

They also intend to give special emphasis to portuguese music and encourage composers to create new works. Thus, the Duo already has some works dedicated to it, having made several premieres. The duo held the first national audition of the work “Work for two pianists” by Morton Feldman in Portugal, in 2014. Kla-Vier Duo also recorded two video clips with pieces by the Portuguese composers Paulo Bastos and Sofia Sousa Rocha, which are part of the regular programming of the international music channel CMusic Tv.
