We are proud to announce that that the Görög Sisters Piano Duo was selected as one of this year’s prize winners at the International Summer Academy of the Mozarteum University Salzburg!
As prize winners, the Görög Sisters were invited to perform at the prize winners’ concert, in fact treated to the closing spot on the concert, held on Sunday, August 26, at 11 am, in the Grand Hall (Großer Saal) of the Salzburg Mozarteum University, as part of the Salzburger Festspiele.
It was an amazing experience to play in the Großer Saal, along with a host of talented young artists. We would like to express our gratitude for the enormous support and refreshing musical ideas we received from prof. Aquiles Delle Vigne and Ninoslav Živković.
The Görög Sisters piano duo was formed spontaneously given the fact that both sisters in the family played piano. The backdrop to this duo’s musical beginnings is the Görög family’s deep love for the music and the sisters’ affection for each other.
At first playing the piano was no more for them than having fun. Noémi, the older sister was eight years old when she started playing, but as younger sisters often do, Enikő, aged only four at that time, immediately started copying her older sibling.
This was the start of what was to be a lifelong joint career in music. Soon Noémi was teaching her sister all the skills she had learned in her piano classes at the music school, with Enikő faithfully repeating everything she was shown.
