Menuhin Duo

Piano Duo

“Sounds like ideal duo partners, playing throughout as if entirely of one mind. Their interpretations on the whole are broad and thoughtful.. chewy, almost symphonically worked-out argument, rather than bristling with the drama… becomes suitably otherworldly and mysterious… there’s the feeling that every note counts…” – Jessica Duchen, Primephonic

“As if entirely of one mind” (Primephonic) captures the essence of every performance by the dynamic Menuhin Duo. Whether performing on two pianos or side-by-side at the same keyboard, Mookie and Jeremy play as one, interpreting the classical repertoire with devotion and joy. The unique soundscape of the two-piano repertoire allows the Duo great flexibility of range, color, and depth in their performances of works by Mozart, Brahms, Schumann, Lutoslawski, Bartok, and many others.

While exploring existing literature by major composers, the Duo also incorporates music composed by Jeremy into their performances. A former student of Nadia Boulanger, Jeremy has transcribed the great chamber works of Schubert and Brahms, and created original repertoire specifically suited to the Menuhin Duo.

Their sensitive, captivating performances have been heard across the globe including appearances at the Pablo Casals Festival (France), the Seoul Spring Festival (S. Korea), and the Gstaad Menuhin Festival (Switzerland) among others. “A vivid double-act at the piano” (Classical Source), the Menuhin Duo delights audiences with their contemporary and timeless celebration of music for piano duo. The Duo bring a transcendent quality to classic and contemporary works alike in performance, creating “the feeling that every note counts.” (Primephonic). Their previous album, Schubert – Menuhin, featuring the 4-hands works of Schubert and Jeremy’s variations from Schubert’s String Quartet in D minor. “Death and the Maiden”, was released on the Genuin Label in 2016.
