Notes & Reviews:

Praised by the New York Concert Review as having "an easy virtuosity" and demonstrating "an unusually high level of ensemble playing" in their recent Carnegie Hall appearance, Duo Virtuoso - cellist Eric Kutz and Miko Kominami - has been enchanting audiences with their stylish and vivacious playing since 1996. The duo serves as Ensemble-in Residence at Iowa's Luther College, where both are professors. Their varied and delightful program includes lighthearted bonbons, earthy Latin flavors, and Johannes Brahms' timeless masterpiece: the darkly ruminative and complex Cello Sonata No.1 in e.
