Guitarist Brad Richter and cellist Viktor Uzur pair exquisite originals with blazing improvisations and iconic works by composers such as Bartok, Gershwin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Saint-Saens.

Trained at the Royal College of Music and the Moscow Conservatory, respectively, these two consummate performers and composers have each played around the globe to critical acclaim and international awards.

Together, their unique sound incorporates elements of classical music, rock, Eastern European folk, and North American indigenous music, which they deliver with effortless virtuosity, soulful musicality and self-effacing wit.

A staple on Performance Today, the duo tours regularly to such venues as the Bonneville Chamber Music Festival, University of Arizona Presents and the Kirkland Performance Center. The group recently made their New York City debut at the Rubin Museum of Art, introducing their latest touring program, Fragments Transcending.
