Playing with the kind of harmony only possible between twins, Christina and Michelle Naughton have toured the world with their intricate and beautiful double-piano arrangements. Graduates of Juilliard and the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, the Steinway Artists recently recorded their first album, which features works by Mendelssohn, Brahms, Mozart, Schubert, de Falla, Ravel and Lutoslawski. With "stellar musicianship, technical mastery and awe-inspiring artistry" (The San Francisco Examiner), the Naughtons have played with everyone from the New Jersey Symphony at the Kennedy Center to the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

Quotes & Highlights
- "The blending of Latin music with jazz harmony and improvisation has produced more than a mere hybrid, as a survey of New York's younger players would reveal. Manuel Valera, a Cuban pianist in his mid-20's, illustrates that evolution handily: postbop and classical romanticism are as integral to his vocabulary as Latin folk forms, and they all find natural expression in his music." --<em>The New York Times </em>
