What do you do when 2 hands isn't enough for the sound you want? Play the piano with 4 hands! It’s all hands on deck when Evan Ritter and Matthew Eng come to the Open Classical Artist Series this month.

Evan Ritter is no stranger to our Artist Series. As the pianist of the Windsor Trio, he has performed in consecutive summers on our series. This year, he comes with his good friend and fellow pianist Matthew Eng, also a student at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester. Together, they dazzle with double the techical skill and natural musicality.

Evan Ritter
Since his debut with orchestra in 2006, Evan Ritter has performed with the Plano and Fort Worth Symphonies under the batons of Hector Guzman and Andres Franco, respectively. He has received top prizes in competitions including the Sixth International Chopin Youth Piano Competition, Juanita Miller Concerto Competition, Hubbard Chamber Music Competition, Lynn Harrell Concerto Competition and the Fort Worth Symphony Young Artists Competition.

Matthew Eng
A frequent competitor in international piano competitions, some of Matthew’s accolades include Grand Prize Winner in the Prima Artists International Music Competition, first place winner in the International Young Artists Piano Competition, first place in the 13th Osaka International Music Competition in Japan, the Bravura Philharmonic Young Artists Concerto Competition, the Greater Princeton Steinway Society and Steinway Society of South Jersey competitions. Most recently, he was a semi-finalist in the prestigious Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition in Salt Lake City, Utah.
