Born in New Zealand in 1990, Ben started playing the violin at three years old. Four years later, Nigel Kennedy recommended he joined The Yehudi Menuhin School in London – he was granted a scholarship and begun training.
Ben’s concerto debut was at 12 years old in Istanbul playing with the Romanian State Orchestra at the Mozart Festival. At the age of 15 he released his first solo CD, ‘Arcadian Strings’, which won the Classic FM Next Big Thing Award. He is currently studying on a full scholarship at the Royal College of Music with Natasha Boyarsky. He has just released his second CD ‘Ben Baker Live at The Menuhin Hall’ and won 1st Prize in the Royal Over-Seas League Competition.
Petr was born in 1984 in Moscow and started playing the piano at the age of 5. In 1991 he entered the Central Music School, studying under Siyavush Gadjiev, Valery Pyasetsky and Andrei Pisarev. In 2003 Petr was awarded a full international scholarship by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, which allowed him to continue his studies in the Royal Academy of Music (London) under professor Hamish Milne and visiting professor Alexander Satz. In 2010 Petr returned to London to start his Masters program in the Royal College of Music under Dimitri Alexeev on a full scholarship. His repertoire stretches from Orlando Gibbons to Elliott Carter.
