Stilyana Nikolova and Maria Quaranta

Duo Hybris was born in 2020 with their first performance of the Suite for four hands piano by Darius Milhaud “La Creatione du mondo” performed as part of the concert conference dedicated to African mythology performed at the Ravenna Art Museum. The two pianists, Maria Quaranta (23, Italy) and Stilyana Nikolova (26, Bulgaria) who are part of it met during the Second Level Academic Diploma in Piano, achieved on the same day with full marks for both. In June 2021 they continued their concert activity with a concert dedicated to the repertoire for two pianos with music by Shostakovich and Brahms, followed by another concert conference about theology in the arts, playing Debussy and Rachmaninov. The duo was born with the intention of deepening the repertoire for four hands and two pianos, focusing on contemporary compositions and popular music. Duo Hybris won 2nd prize in the International Competition of Sarzana and 3rd prize in the MAP International Comeptition of Sarzana.
