Notes & Reviews:

The name Duo vio-LINK-oto is formed by letters of the ensemble’s two instruments: violin and koto. In addition, "oto" means "sound" in Japanese. Link naturally also refers to the joining of instruments and music of different cultures. Pairing Japanese koto with violin in duo combination is relatively recent, and the repertoire of original compositions is still small. Ryuko Mizutani and Pia Liptak established their duo in 2002 and are particularly interested in increasing the repertoire for the ensemble by commissioning new works. Pia and Ryuko’s pioneering and promoting efforts include concert performances, recordings, radio broadcasts, presentations and lectures about their work, music, and instruments.
