Piano, four hands
Amélie Fortin: piano
Marie-Christine Poirier: piano

The Duo Fortin-Poirier, featuring pianists Amélie Fortin and Marie-Christine Poirier, has been heralded as one of the most promising of its generation. Graduates from the Université de Montréal with a master degree and D.E.S.S. (Specialized Graduate Diploma) under the direction of Jean-Eudes Vaillancourt and Paul Stewart, each pianist won several awards and grants individually before making their debut as a duo team in 2005. They immediately developed an extraordinarily powerful ensemble, and with their very similar piano artistry, a remarkable musical union was born. Their dynamism does not go unnoticed and their lively and explosive style is impressive.
