Aleksandra and Simon were amazing. They play a high level of music and can play virtually anything. The portable piano that Simon uses is stunning.

We have had Simon and Aleksandra performing for our wedding and we can’t recommend them enough. Communication was perfect from start to finish and their playing was fantastic. It’s the best piano and violin duo, virtuosic and talented. There is no song they can not play. Absolutely phenomenal.
