Gran Volta is a duet of two beautiful young ladies from Russia-Elvira Khametshina (violin) and Evgenia Boyarinova (cello).
Both started their passion for music at the early age of 6, and both now hold Master's degrees from the Conservatory in Russia, where they attended separately, both on full scholarship. Many times during their education they each became winners of different National and international competitions.
Their now combined careers have encompassed many facets in the entertainment field ranging from teaching, staging, directing, production and of course performance.
This unique pair first met in 2013 and immediately decided to create their own show which includes the virtuosity you expect of Russian Strings School with the high energy of rock stars. Their style breaks down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical to pop and rock music.
A distinctive feature of their performance is using cello and violin as equally solo instruments.
Gran Volta a duo of musicians with classical education, rebellious souls and lateral thinking. Have a listen, we hope you will enjoy!!
