A unique moment of companionship

                                                          …One piano, four hands!

And a pair of identical twins! TwinMuse, created more than 10 years ago, is made up of Hourshid and Mehrshid Afrakhteh, musical artists and duet pianists originally from Iran, born under the sign of Gemini!

They both left Iran when they were 18 to pursue their musical studies, first in France, at the Conservatoire national régional de Metz, then in Canada, at the universities of Québec, Toronto and Montréal, with the goal of obtaining their masters' in performance and instrumental education.

In this concert, TwinMuse offers you an all-inclusive ticket to France, Germany and Hungary, with a stopover in Cuba before returning to Canada. Their repertoire includes mainly the works of composers of the 19th and 20th centuries : Debussy, Lecuona, Brahms, Liszt and Davidson. The TwinMuse duo has performed in Quebec, Ontario and France. Their collaboration with many Canadian artists proves their interest in the blending of artistic practices. Take for example their association with composers Tim Brady, Nicole Lizée, Matthew Davidson; with choreographers Frédéric Tavernini and Elizabeth Suich; and with the storyteller Myriame El Yamani.

As duet pianists, they have played at the Fête de la musique de Tremblant under the artistic direction of Angèle Dubeau, Gallery 345 in Toronto, the Canadian Music Centre in Montreal and in Toronto, the Monument National, the Maison de la culture Frontenac, the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur and the Outremont theatre, among others.

A rare musical evening is at your fingertips!
