DORIAN-KOMANOFF BLANDY - violin

Whether on the concert stage or in the orchestra pit, UK-based American conductor Dorian Komanoff Bandy brings infectious vitality, drama, and depth to performances of 17th- and 18th-century music.

Over the past seven years, Dorian has established himself as an authority on the works of Mozart, whose operas he 'brings to life' with 'unquestionable theatricality', 'palpable passion' (Opera Today) and 'ingenious recitative accompaniment' (Counterpunch), all the while 'treading the line between joy and sadness' (Opera Now). His 2012 production of Così fan tutte (London, Hampstead Garden Opera), which featured improvised ornamentation and cadenzas, was recognised by the OffWestEnd Awards as the 'UK's Best Opera Production'. He has served as a guest music-director and conductor with ensembles on both sides of the Atlantic, including Musica Poetica London, Hampstead Garden Opera, Sinfonia New York, Underworld Productions Opera, and others.

 CHRISTINA KOBB - piano

Praised by Michael Miller of New York Arts as a “master of the modern piano”, the 2017 Carnegie Hall debut of Christina Kobb presented a program of Schumann’s sonata op 11 and related works.

In 2015, her research on piano technique of 1820s Vienna had been presented by the New York Times. This opened the door for a three weeks Introduction Tour of the US in November 2015, where she visited the radio station All Classical Portland, OR, and lectured at the renowned Ira F. Brilliant Center for Beethoven Studies in California. In May 2016, she gave a lecture recital at Harvard University, Quincy House.

Christina holds degrees (Cand. Mag. in piano teaching, BA fortepiano performance) and MA from the Norwegian Academy of Music (NAM), Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (BA, MA (cum laude) of fortepiano performance, with teachers Bart van Oort and Stanley Hoogland, and was honoured to receive a one-year studentship to the renowned Cornell University to study with prof. Malcolm Bilson (2009/10). Christina has appeared at various occasions in Norway, England, The Netherlands and the U.S. with solo recitals and chamber music concerts. She is the proud recipient of Pianist Nils Larsen’s bequest of 2016. Earlier in her career, she won the accompanist prize of ‘The John Kerr Award for English song’ (2006) at Finchcocks Musical Museum in Kent, England, and she received the ‘Muzio Clementi Award’ (2008). In 2007, she was awarded the coveted TICON scholarship.
