The Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo

The Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo has been presenting innovative programs of contemporary music throughout North America and Europe since 1995. Helena Bugallo and Amy Williams perform cutting-edge new works and masterpieces of the twentieth century for piano four-hands and two pianos. They have premiered dozens of works, many of which were written especially for the Duo, and they have worked directly with such renowned composers as David Lang, Peter Eötvos, Louis Andriessen, Lukas Foss, Steve Reich, Bernard Rands, Betsy Jolas and Kevin Volans. They also collaborate with composers who explore new approaches to the piano through multimedia applications, electronics, and extended techniques.
