By Stephen Raskauskas |

When pianists Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Roe met as students at the Juilliard School, they began a partnership that has developed into one of the most successful in classical music today. Anderson & Roe Piano Duo has topped the Billboard charts with their best-selling albums, and wowed music lovers around the world with their Emmy-nominated music videos. WFMT was thrilled to invite them to our Levin Performance Studio for a concert and conversation before a live audience on Impromptu. It turns out, it wasn’t the first time Roe performed at WFMT: as a Chicago native, she recorded her college audition tapes in the same studio! Enjoy selections from their Impromptu performance below, or listen to the full live performance.
