The Bergmann Duo’s dynamic and energetic performances of uniquely eclectic programs has inspired audiences for more than two decades. Their recitals and concerts with orchestras have taken them all over the world, including the United States, Italy, Germany, Holland, Greece and Canada. They have garnered many awards such as first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta, Italy, and at the fourth Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition, and have appeared at international festivals.

The duo’s CD productions include recordings for the Arktos, Koch International, Brilliant Classics and Naxos labels. Their extensive repertoire ranges from the baroque to the contemporary and incorporates numerous arrangements and compositions of their own.
