This Thursday, March 14th at 8 pm, piano lovers are in for a double treat at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Get tickets and $35 tickets with code AKR30133


Giesbrecht, a young German-Bulgarian talent — and one of the last pianists to study under Hannover’s renowned Professor Kämmerling — enjoys honorary citizen status in Hamburg, where he performs on a regular basis. Körting, a young American-German pianist from Cleveland, burst into the scene on the talent show From The Top and had been showcased on many occasions since. Uniting forces throughout while studying at Julliard and Yale — and fostering their collaboration at Paul Schenley’s Piano Fest in the Hamptons — the recently engaged grads share the piano bench in a natural and seamless four-hand duet.

The couple also shares an entrepreneurial bent and this summer will launch a concert event staged at an equestrian riding tournament facility near the eminent Schleswig-Holstein Festival. Complete with horse stables and grandstands, the novel makeshift concert hall will be equipped with temporary flooring and a Steinway Grand.
