Cuban-born and Bronx-based, Orlando and Orlay Alonso are brothers who began playing the piano when each was six years old. Both attended the National School of the Arts in Havana, followed by studies at the Manhattan School of Music and Yale University. Describing the artistry of the duo, The New York Times declared: “It is never about showing off what they can do technically, but rather about bringing the listener into the meaning of the music. They are real virtuosos of their instrument not only because of their rock solid performances, but because of their considerable intelligence, sensitivity, intense feeling and contagious joy.” In a dance themed program of four-hand piano works, Orlando and Orlay offer works by Brahms, Debussy, Stravinsky, Piazzolla, Cervantes and more.
