Christina and Michelle Naughton, Dueling Pianos

Twin sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton are two pianists who are “paired to perfection,” according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. During the 2008-2009 season, the Naughton sisters made debuts at the Kennedy Center with the New Jersey Symphony and at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts with The Philadelphia Orchestra. Following their 2010 performance with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the Sing Tao Daily proclaimed: “Joining two hearts and four hands at two grand pianos, the Naughton sisters created an electrifying and moving musical performance. They played like two people singing to each other, creating a duet entrancing in a way that no single piano performance could achieve.” The Steinway Artists are graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and recently recorded their first album at the Sendesaal in Bremen, Germany, which was released worldwide in December 2012.
