Nettle & Markham Tour with Pianos in the USA, Europe and the UK
Nettle & Markham are very experienced in touring with their own pianos. Their own Steinway Model D Concert Grand can be used for duet recitals or stand alongside a similar resident instrument for two-piano performances. Also they can transport their very rare Pleyel Double Piano. READ MORE...
The Pleyel Double Piano is best described as two overstrung pianos in one rectangular case (measuring 1.53m/5 feet - the normal keyboard width - by 2.90m/9 feet 7 inches), with a keyboard at each end, a combined soundboard and one large lid to reflect the sound of both pianos to the audience.
Nettle & Markham are now celebrating their 40th Anniversary. Already accomplished solo pianists winning prizes in National and International Competitions, David and Richard's first duo performances took place in 1977 and within four years they had performed on four continents.
Nettle & Markham's varied and wide-ranging repertoire for Two Pianos, Piano Duet, Concertos with Orchestra and Works with Choir can be found here as well as various musical projects undertaken over the years.
