About the Duo
A newly-formed duo featuring the celebrated German pianist Michael Endres and internationally-acclaimed violinist/violist Mark Menzies, two masters at the height of their careers brought together in New Zealand. Having first performed together playing Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata, Michael and Mark had an instant connection. They have since gone on to perform chamber music together at the Akaroa Music Festival and, more recently, played a featured recital as part of the UC/Arts Centre Chamber Series which included Schnittke's Quasi una sonata.
