Viney/Grinberg Duo

Liam Viney

Liam Viney and Anna Grinberg enjoy a prominent profile as a piano duo, involving festivals, major series, live radio broadcasts, orchestras, and CD releases on Naxos, ABC Classics and Tall Poppies. Described as “barnstorming” (The Australian) and “unforgettable - sure to be Best of the Year – the most compelling case for the beauty and variety of two piano repertory this reviewer has ever heard” (Rick Schultz, Los Angeles Times), the duo is committed to exploring classics of the two-piano and four hand repertoire, but also contributes to the ongoing expansion of that literature through commissioning composers.

Viney and Grinberg’s innovative and creative approach has resulted in collaborations with composers, artists, dancers, choreographers and other established performing ensembles - as well as book chapters, articles and scholarly seminars and presentations. The Duo spent a decade in the United States, including five years at California Institute of the Arts, before taking up their current positions as Ensemble-in-Residence at The University of Queensland, Australia. Professor Viney is Head of the School of Music at UQ, and Dr Anna Grinberg is Head of Piano.
