A few words about the musicians:

Renowned Cypriot soprano Mariza Anastasiades received the “Grand Prix” Award at the International Singing Competition Stojan Stojanov-Gančev 2021 as well as the Gold Prize on Quebec International Singing Competition 2021.

Ms. Anastasiades has collaborated with orchestras and conductors from the Metropolitan Opera New York – Gregory Buchalter; with the Varna International Orchestra, where she sang the role of Lauretta from “Gianni Schicchi” 2019.  In 2017/18 she was part of the OpernFest Prague, where she collaborated with Richard Hein, conductor of the Prague State Opera House . Mariza also sang with the Danube Symphony Orchestra – Andreas Déak in Budapest, June 2017. In 2018 she performed the role of Drusilla from “L’ incoronazione di Poppea” with the Larissa Symphony Orchestra – under the baton of Christos Ktistakis.

From a very young age she has taken part in specialized master classes regarding vocal techniques, interpretation aspects, with conductors, opera singers and vocal coaches such as Barbara Frittoli, Marco Balderi, Vitalba Mosca (Italy), Claudia Visca, Sona Ghazarian(Vienna), Andrea Rost (Germany), Kassandra Dimopoulou, Aris Christofellis (Greece).

Ms Anastasiades studied Classical Singing and Opera in Austria (Conservatory of Vienna) and in Cyprus (M.Mus University of Nicosia), specializing in Italian Bel Canto repertory and vocal technique (MMus, Bmus).

In 2019, Mariza received the “Laureate Prize” with the highest score in the category ‘Professional Opera Singers’ at the Angel Voice International Singing Competition Belgrade. As well as, the 1st Prize at the International Singing Competition organized by the Danube Symphony Orchestra in Budapest 2017.

In December 2013, Mariza received the 1st prize by the Kyrenia Opera Singing Competition 2013 that was held in New York. In 2015, she received a scholarship as “Student of Excellence in Singing” by the Maria Ioannou Foundation. Mariza is a graduate of the Limassol Music Lyceum “Marios Tokas”.Future engagements include collaboration series of concerts with the Baroque Ensemble Marquise at The Royal Palace of Gödöllö in August 2021.

The two artists, the Russian Elina Linchevskaya and the Czech Zbynek Maruska, originate from the same generation of pianists who came through the disciplined and structured musical education that was traditionally taught and made their countries famous for.

Their studies at the Prague Musical Academy, the Russian Academy of Music and the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, enabled them to develop substantial recital activities as soloists as well as play with orchestras such as the Prague Symphony Orchestra, Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra and other well-known musical ensembles of chamber music such as the Prague Mozart Quintet.

Having both gone through the explosive and enthusiastic world of the skilful ‘young talent’, to that of the thoughtful and mature musician who expresses the European musical thought, currently transmit this thought to the young musicians they teach.

The common aspects of their artistic careers as well as character traits, were essential ingredients for the creation of a close and fruitful cooperation between them, that has led to the setting up of a chamber music group, which aims to demonstrate the completeness in expression and fullness of sound of the pianoforte, and at the same time offer to the music loving public, the pleasure of enjoying worthy musical presentations.
