The Piano Duo Mephisto is the encounter between two musicians, who met and trained at the piano school of the Santa Cecilia conservatory: Stefano Caponi e Stefania Maroni. Their partnership is based on a deep musical similarity which is expressed in a sonoric empathy of great suggestion continuously balancing elegance, energy and passion. These are the main characteristics of their interpretative vision based on a choice of repertoire which is never academic but always driven by a sincere sentiment of authenticity.
This repertoire is divided in a double formation of a piano duo and four hand player and ranges from works of W.A Mozart to M. Ravel, from J. Brahms to D. Milhaud, crossing experiments of transcriptions, as in the case of Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin, or experiences of collaborations with other instruments such as the famous sonata by C. Boiling.
The Mephisto duo has always been received with enthusiasm by the audience and critics during their numerous recitals that saw them protagonists in the major italian theater and concert festivals and also participating in radio musical broadcasts of the Vatican Radio.
