“You had the sense that you were listening to the future, and the near future at that.” - The New York Times
Russian cellist Svetlana Mochalova and Ukrainian pianist Slava Sidorenko first met at the Royal Northern College of Music. A musical relationship blossomed into a personal relationship and the couple are now married. Between them, they’ve won multiple awards and performed at venues including the Purcell Room, the Barbican, Wigmore Hall and Glastonbury. As part of their mission to engage with audiences in a more imaginative way, they’ve developed their own Sveta & Slava app. This allows concert goers to see their Music á la Carte menu and vote for the pieces the duo will perform.
