The Salkind International Piano Duo Festival spotlights world-class artists in a series of concerts that capture the spirit of similar Russian and Eastern European festivals. This year's event showcases performances by distinguished American and international piano duelists at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where you'll be transported on A Baltic Voyage with musical treasures from the countries that border the Baltic Sea -- Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany and Poland. The commission of a new work, Mirrors - Variations on a Traditional Swedish Dalecarlian Ballad for two pianos, by the distinguished Swedish composer Nils Lindberg, will be premiered at the Friday show, while a second commission of a new work for two pianos, Echoes of Tchaikovsky, by German composer Marcel Bergmann, will be premiered at the Saturday concert. The Saturday finale concert will also feature the American premiere of a suite from the Russian Ballet Anyuta, presented by Festival pianists and guest artists from San Francisco Ballet, Smuin Ballet, Marin Dance Theatre and San Francisco Opera Ballet.
