Rochester, NY – Pianists Irina Lupines and Lyudmila Lakisova attended a music conservatory for gifted children together in Belarus, where they struck up a friendship, as well as a partnership playing piano 4 hands. Each immigrated to separate cities in the US, but their friendship--and musical partnership--remained strong. They tell their extraordinary story to Julia Figueras.
