Duo-pianists, George Vona and his wife, Lark Popov are known for their evocative and exciting musical performances for two pianos ranging from Bach to Bernstein. After their New York recital debut, they were praised by the New York Times
for their fine sense of pianistic colour and their lively and involving interpretations. They have performed all over the world with renowned symphonies and at prestigious Music Halls. In 2000, their second CD, The Book of Mirrors
, was nominated for a JUNO award. In 2000, a diagnosis of focal dystonia for Vona led to the duo’s retirement from concertizing professionally. Vona holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Hartt School, University of Hartford; and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto Law School. He is now practicing law in Toronto.
