ABOUT SPINA & BENIGNETTI PIANO DUO

For Eleonora Spina and Michele Benignetti, the spirit of music courses through their veins. Coming from a strong musical lineage with backgrounds as soloist and chamber musicians, the duo is an internationally acclaimed recording artist who performs all over the world. The American Record Guide writes: “Their ensemble is spot on, and there is a wonderful flow to the music under their fingers.”
