The St. Charles Public Library's Virtual Concert series continues on Sunday, Feb. 28, with a special performance by the EStrella Piano Duo.

The duo, Elena Doubovitskaya and Svetlana Belsky, burst onto the music scene in 2011 with a series of concerts celebrating the Great Russian masterpieces for piano duet.

 

"Svetlana Belsky and Elena Doubovitskaya are superb pianists on their own; together as the EStrella Piano Duo, they are doubly superb," said John Puccio of Classical Candor.

In 2018, the duo was awarded a Global Music Award silver medal for their critically acclaimed CD "Tales from the East," featuring stories of adventure, magic, and romance by Russian composers.

Between the two, they have been heard throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. Their concert credits include Carnegie (Weill) Hall, Kyiv Philharmonic Hall, Chicago Symphony Center, St. Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakoff Museum, Baptist University of Hong Kong, Ravinia, and Tanglewood Music Festivals, among many others.

This event is part of the St. Charles Public Library's Sunday Concert Series featuring a variety of musical performances.

This performance is funded through donations to the St. Charles Public Library Foundation. The concert will be recorded and available to view on the library's YouTube channel.
