After meeting in graduate school at the Peabody Conservatory, Mr. Ismar Gomes and Ms. Wan-Chi Su began a collaborative relationship that evolved into Duo Sorolla, which celebrates its tenth anniversary season this year. Throughout their career together, Duo Sorolla have performed dozens of recitals on important series throughout the USA, often collaborating with other renowned musicians. The Duo has performed a wide range of music including most of the standard repertoire for cello and piano, as well as lesser known music. Duo Sorolla’s recitals bring together varied works that explore new and traditional approaches to expression, and the Duo enjoys guiding audiences along this journey through each unique program. Over the past several seasons, Duo Sorolla has commissioned and premiered works from William Weigel, Aaron Malone, Larry Nelson, and Mark Hagerty. Apart from these special projects, they have also championed the works of Lera Auerbach, George Walker, and Aaron Jay Kernis, and are keen to work with and promote the works of other living composers. Mr. Gomes and Ms. Su studied much of the duo repertoire under the tutelage of Colin Carr, Tom Sauer, Michael Kannen and other distinguished artists.
