rossorose duo

Alisa Rose, violin. www.arosefiddle.com                                                                             Amy Zanrosso, piano

Alisa Rose and Amy Zanrosso are two expressive and powerful musicians intent on exploring what it means to be a piano and violin duo making music in the 21st century. Striking and dramatic in their musical choices, RossoRose seamlessly melds their classical training with the rhythms and musical freedom of a variety of traditions that include tango and American roots music and are not shy about breaking rules in order to communicate with an audience.

Musical sisters* separated at birth, Alisa Rose and Amy Zanrosso were magically reunited in February 2015 under the auspices of one Metropolis Violin Concerto. Feeling like they still had a lot more to musically say and explore they formed the RossoRose Duo which will combine the world of their preferred classical classics with music being written in the here and now. Look forward to experiencing clashing movements of different sonatas paired with Alisa's original compositions and maybe some drums thrown in for good measure. 

Let the journey begin.

* for the record, we are not actually sisters....
