It is the clarity of the details and flawless ensemble. Kobrin is a Russian who won the Van Cliburn Competition. D'Oria-Nicolas is also a Russian-trained competition winner, has performed in 34 different countries, and is the artistic director of the Fondamenta label. The two have been a duo since 2009.
