Biography
Katia and Marielle Labeque

Katia and Marielle Labèque are sibling pianists renowned for their ensemble of synchronicity and energy. Their musical ambitions started at an early age, and they rose to international fame with their contemporary rendition of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (one of the first gold records in classical music), and have since developed a stunning career with performances worldwide.

Last season included performances with the New York Philharmonic and Jaap van Zweden; appearances at the Vienna Konzerthaus with Camerata Salzburg, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg with Bryce Dessner’s new piece El Chan, and Easter Festival Salzburg with Dresden Staatskapelle; a European tour with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with Semyon Bychkov; and performances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Berlin Philharmonic. The duo’s new projects will be the focus of three days in April 2019 at the Philharmonie de Paris. The sisters then return to the New York Philharmonic and The Cleveland Orchestra, the latter of which will include a special program for families, and a recital in St. Louis.

The Labèques have had the privilege of working with numerous composers. In May 2015 they presented the World Premiere of Philip Glass’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Gustavo Dudamel at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Last spring the duo premiered Dessner’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and John Storgårds at London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The sisters have appeared with Baroque music ensembles such as The English Baroque Soloists with John Eliot Gardiner, Il Giardino Armonico with Giovanni Antonini (with which they share the stage again in 2019), Musica Antica with Reinhard Goebel, Venice Baroque with Andrea Marcon, and il Pomo d’oro with Maxim Emelyanichev, and they have toured with The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Simon Rattle.
