The Kaplan Duo


April 4, 2019, 7 pm

The Kaplan sisters have been sharing their love of music since childhood. Nanette Kaplan Solomon was accepted into the Juilliard School Pre-College Division at the age of nine. Iris Kaplan Rosenthal soon followed, leading to a fierce competition for practice time on the one Steinway piano at home. While pursuing their own paths, they occasionally played duets for family gatherings. After one such event in 1987, they discovered their sisterly bond provided a remarkable sense of shared artistic sensibilities. Thus the Kaplan Duo was born. Their rich four-hand repertoire offers a unique blend of individual virtuosity and exciting interpretations that have appeared on numerous stages along the East Coast, as well as in Washington, New York, and Puerto Rico.
