The 2019 – 2020 season of the Carlsen Center Presents Series continues with revolutionary Steinway artists Anderson & Roe on 8:00 p.m., Friday, February 7, in Polsky Theatre.

Known for their adrenalized performances, original compositions and notorious music videos, Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe are revolutionizing the piano duo experience for the 21st century. Described as “the most dynamic duo of this generation” (San Francisco Classical Voice), and “the very model of complete 21st-century musicians” (The Washington Post), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo aims to make classical music a relevant and powerful force around the world. Their innovations have captivated such media outlets as MTV’s Total Request Live, NPR’s All Things Considered and From the Top, APM’s Performance Today, PBS’ Texas Music Café and BBC’s In Tune.
