ZOFO, or "20-Fingered Orchestra," is the collaboration of pianists Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi. Since 2009, they have explored the one-piano-four-hands repertoire, as well as commissioned new works for the genre. Their recent recital at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, sponsored by the Swiss Embassy, was featured on Classical WETA's Front Row Washington, and they've just released their first commercial CD, "Mind Meld" on the Sono Luminus label. Producer Deb Lamberton spoke with Eva-Maria and Keisuke about ZOFO Duet, and what it's like to perform together shoulder-to-shoulder at the same keyboard.
