Christina and Michelle Naughton are twins who were born in Princeton, N.J., and grew up in Madison, Wis., each learning the piano in her own way.
As older students, they discovered their love of playing together. They attended the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School, attending all of one another’s piano lessons. At Curtis, each won the school’s Festorazzi Prize. They relocated to New York City and hit the concert circuit.
They have performed on concert stages in Europe, Asia and North America. They have joined chamber music festivals. They have worked with conductors such as Stephene Deneve, Edo deWaart, Charles Dutoit and JoAnn Falletta. In 2012, the record label Orfeo released the Naughton twins’ first album, appropriately called “Piano Duets.”
On Monday, the Naughton sisters will be at the Sottile Theatre in Charleston for a 7:30 p.m. recital presented by the Charleston Concert Association.
They will perform Felix Mendelssohn’s Andante and Variations in A Major for Four Hands Op. 92, Claude Debussy’s “In Black and White” for two pianos, John Adams’ “Hallelujah Junction” and Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” arranged for four hands.
