Mr. Anderson and Ms. Roe met in 2000 as freshmen at The Juilliard School and the two formed their dynamic musical partnership shortly thereafter. They have since performed across North America, with notable recitals in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Portland, St. Paul, Fort Worth, Milwaukee, Orlando, Banff, and the Hamptons, as well as in nearly every New York City venue imaginable, from Carnegie Hall to children’s hospitals. In May of 2004, they were featured on MTV’s Total Request Live, and in 2006 they appeared twice on NPR’s From the Top. The Anderson & Roe Piano Duo released their debut album, “Reimagine,” in 2008.
Unquestionably, Mr. Anderson and Ms. Roe left an indelible impression at The Juilliard School, where they both earned their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. A live performance by the Anderson & Roe piano duo is included on the “Sounds of Juilliard” CD celebrating the school’s centennial year. The duo was granted the honor to perform on several prominent Juilliard events, including a presentation for the “Women for Women” Association of the United Nations, the “Juilliard Young Artists and Their Mentors” concert at Zankel Hall, annual concerts for “Friends of the Library,” and repeated performances for the board of directors and donors of the school. In 2006, given only two months to compose and prepare, the Anderson & Roe piano duo gave the world premiere of their own composition “Star Wars Fantasy: Four Impressions for Two Pianos,” replacing John Williams on Juilliard’s “Cinema Serenades” concert in Alice Tully Hall. Additionally, the two directed the groundbreaking project “Life Between the Keys,” a concert that involved the entire Juilliard Piano Class of 2004; this event celebrated the class’s unique camaraderie and chronicled its Juilliard experience in an all-American program of piano music.
The duo’s interactive website, andersonroe.net, has generated tremendous enthusiasm among fans and Internet bloggers. The duo responds regularly to user questions and comments, and their wildly creative, self-produced music videos have been viewed over a million times on YouTube alone.
Greg Anderson & Elizabeth Joy Roe are Steinway Artists.
