Fedorova & Takser Piano Duo is one of the most unique and outstanding piano ensembles in Canada. Both players graduated with the highest distinction from the Montreal Conservatory, they are widely known not only as musicians but also as musical advisors, and founders of the Fedorova & Takser Piano Studio, producing National and International Piano Competition winners. Recent performing projects include Classical music in 3D at the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory and collaboration with movie director D.Vardanyan (Netflix).

Both players were born in Russia, and both graduated from the prestigious College of the Moscow State Conservatory in 2009. In 2011 Daria Fedorova and Ilya Takser were fortunate to be selected by renowned Canadian pianist Richard Raymond to study with him at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montreal. They completed their Master of Music degrees in 2013, both graduating with the highest distinction and sharing the Grand-Prix of the Concours. Many of their performances at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montreal were recorded for radio.

As a long-standing ensemble, Daria and Ilya have accumulated a diverse repertoire from Mozart and Schubert to Bartok, Lutoslawski and contemporary composers A.Rosenblatt, D.L. McIntyre and R. Piana, as well as their own original transcriptions for two pianos.

Recent notable engagements include a Russian-Chinese Concert Tour with Master-Classes in Guangzhou, Moscow, and St-Petersburg, and the performance of their own original transcription of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition for two pianos and Carnival of the Animals by C. Saint-Saens at the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory.
