About the Artists:
The Lavrova/Primakov duo was founded in 2010 by two Juilliard-trained concert pianists who both began their studies in Moscow, Russia. They have performed extensively in the United States, most recently at the University of Vermont Lane Series in Burlington, Manchester Music Festival, Artist Series of Tallahassee, multi-concert tour of the state of Georgia and a month long South African tour, and have garnered numerous critical accolades. "Like the talented and imaginative chefs they are, they work wonders with ingredients given…dazzling display by two phenomenal pianists." - Fanfare

In November 2011, Lavrova and Primakov established their own record label, LP Classics, an initiative committed to unearthing lost historical gems, presenting never-before-released recordings, and enriching the discographies of emerging stars of a new generation. “We feel that our strength is in being two very individual performers, long-standing friends and collaborators, and this keeps us constantly grounded in promoting projects we feel a responsibility toward. We enter every situation, concert and project with a level of pride, respect and devotion and we sincerely hope that this will translate to our future listeners.”

Albums include the little-known Suites for Two Pianos by Anton Arensky  (LP Classics 1001); second album released in July 2013 (LP Classics 1010) with four-hand music of Franz Milhaud, Carl Czerny, John Corigliano and Franz Schubert; a live disc from the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition (LP Classics 1015), with two-piano repertoire by Alexander Scriabin, Johannes Brahms, Ferruccio Busoni and Franz Liszt, the Suites and Symphonic Dances of Sergei Rachmaninoff (LP Classics 1019); and most recently Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 arranged for two-pianos.
