Duo Berkendael was established in 2010 as a result of many years of friendship and musical collaboration. Magdalena and Tomasz joined their forces while studying at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels where they both graduated with distinction and actively performed together in various chamber music ensembles. As a duo they debuted with a contemporary composition of Betsy Jolas --? Musique pour Delphine. Having this experience they decided to expand their repertoire for this particular formation. They perform a variety of original works composed for a string duo, including compositions by J. Haydn, L. Van Beethoven, M. Ravel, Z. Kodaly, E. Schulhoff, B. Martinu, as well as arrangements and contemporary music. Magdalena and Tomasz also collaborate with many pianists performing various repertoire for piano trios, piano quartets as well as baroque ensembles. Their common passion for chamber music influenced their work as teachers. Currently they are holding violin and cello teachers positions at the Mehli Mehta Music Foundation in Bombay, India, where they introduced regular chamber music classes and performances.
