Dorian Komanoff-Bandy, UK-based American conductor Dorian Komanoff Bandybrings 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'. When not conducting, Dorian maintains a thriving career as a performer on early violins and keyboards. His 'spectacular violin playing' (PlanetHugill), marked by 'sensibility and virtuosity' (Musical Pointers), has charmed audiences in venues ranging from London’s Wigmore and Cadogan Halls to Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and New York’s Symphony Space. He spent four years as leader and co-director of Musica Poetica London, and has been a frequent guest concertmaster/soloist with Sinfonia New York, the Amphion Consort (London), Musical Offering (Boston), and other groups across Europe and North America.

Christina Kobb was 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.
