We're taking a moment to thank all of our supporters and to welcome any new faces that haven't yet tried classical music. Join us, at Portico, for an afternoon of beautiful piano duets by two of Europe's finest pianists.

Amandine is a Laureate of Fondation d’Entreprise Banque Populaire, Tillett Trust, Kirckman Concert Society, Philip and Dorothy Green Award and Park Lane Group, Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, Hattori Foundation and the Worshipful Company of Musicians.
Amandine’s passion for chamber music is reflected in numerous recordings and awards for these recordings include the prestigious Diapason d’or, Gramophone magazine’s Editor’s Choice, Telerama FFFF, amongst many others. On top of her concert activity, she is regularly invited as teacher for academies and jury of international music competitions.
She was piano and chamber music teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in London until 2021 and became Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. Since October 2021, she teaches at the Beethoven Institute of the Wien MDW.
Born in La Chaux-de-Fonds (CH), Coraline Cuenot discovered the piano at the age of seven and studied with Ivan Klansky (Guarneri Trio Prague) with whom she obtained her Master's degree at the Lucerne University of Music, but also with Gérard Wyss, Valérie Brandt-Luong, Ventsislav Yankoff, Catherine Courvoisier, Edith Fischer and Jorge Pepi.
She is the founder of the Racinotes festival which takes place every autumn in her home village of Cerneux-Péquignot.
Coraline Cuenot is also passionate about chamber music. She joins a number of musicians from here and elsewhere for moments in duo, trio, quartet or quintet!
At the same time, she is expanding her universe through a solo project "Yoqo Qunï", or the project "Miroirs" with the video artist Viktor Konwicki, as well as various musical, theatrical or dance collaborations.
