Duo Concertone — Zino and Natasha Bogachek, the husband and wife violin/viola duo, were both born in the former Soviet Union and share many similarities in their lives. They both attended special music schools for gifted children and continued their studies with renowned violinists and master teachers – Natasha in Moscow Conservatory with Prof. A. Vinnitsky and Zino in Lviv Conservatory with Prof. M. Veitzner. At an early age they began concert careers, performing recitals and appearing as  soloists with various orchestras in the former USSR, Europe and the United States. They met and were married after coming to the United States when Natasha was earning an Artist Diploma at Peabody Conservatory with Professors B. Senofsky and H. Greenberg and while Zino received his Master’s Degree from Boston University studying with Professors Y. Mazurkevich and E. Lehner. Duo Concertone was founded in 1997 out of a desire to offer audiences a variety of programs including a lesser-known repertoire of works for two violins. Since then the Duo Concertone has performed numerous recitals throughout the United States and Italy, including the solo appearances with Centennial Philharmonic and Eclipse Chamber Orchestra and recorded for classical music radio stations in Colorado and Tennessee. In 2003 Duo Concertone in collaboration with Vernissage Records released a world premiere recording of Telemann’s Six Sonatas for Two Violins, Op. 2. Praised for their homogeneity and style, Duo Concertone has presented critically acclaimed programs of works taken from three centuries of music. Currently, Zino and Natasha are members of the Washington, D.C. major ensembles, the Washington National Opera Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra respectively.
