BIOGRAPHIES
The VOLT & POTENZA DUO is a first prizewinner of the Bradshaw & Buono international piano competition 2017. While studying at Trinity Laban Conservatory (London, 2015), pianists Giulio Potenza and Oda Voltersvik started a collaboration prestigious awards, such as ...with the aim of developing their common interest for four hands and two pianos compositions.

The duo has performed at several important venues and music societies in the UK (St James' s Piccadilly, St Martin in the Fields, Charlton House, Regent Hall, Edinburgh Society of Musicians, Young Generation Artist`s Scheme at Powderham Castle) and at international venues and festivals including Carnegie Hall (Weill Recital Hall, New York), "Palermo Classica” International Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, "Grieg in Bergen” Series and Grieg Museum in Bergen. Recent venues include the concert series in Sandefjord (“MiSK”), Kabuso Concert Hall, Lofoten Chamber Music Festival (outside the festival season) and le Buisson de Cadouin, France. Their debut CD "Khoreia" (Velut Luna Label, Italy, April 2016), includes some rarely executed pieces by J.C. Bach and Schumann and a commissioned piece by contemporary Irish composer Philip Martin.

"(...) is as close as you’d wish to believe that one mind is controlling four hands. And again, there is an infectious brio and joie de vivre." "(...) they deserve every success."
