The duo pianists Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann are truly a team –husband and wife, and also partners in Canada’s leading four hand piano ensemble. They have been performing together for almost 30 years and have recorded for Naxos, Brilliant Classics and most recently for ARS. They have concertized in theatres from Carnegie Hall and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw to the community hall on tiny Denman Island.
Their extensive repertoire ranges from the baroque to the contemporary and incorporates numerous own arrangements and compositions. They recently premiered Marcel’s latest work, Concerto for Piano, Four Hands and Chamber Orchestra, which was commissioned by White Rock Concerts in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Re-creating a lost piano world of the past century, the Bergmanns
now tour regularly with their two grand pianos in tow. Overseas, their recitals
have taken them to France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Macedonia,
Spain and Portugal. At home in Canada they have recently been named co-Artistic
Directors of the immensely successful White Rock Concerts.
Marcel and Elizabeth Bergmann dazzled audiences with their four hand virtuosity and accompanied Julie Nesrallah on our Classical Music Cruise on the Douro in Portugal and Spain in 2017.
