The Soroka-Greene Duo is a husband-wife team of international prize-winning soloists, presenting brilliant and personal performances of standard violin-piano repertoire as well as many unique and fascinating lesser-known works. The couple made the first recording of the four Bolcom Sonatas, and Solomia Soroka discovered otherwise unplayed exquisite works of Arthur Hartmann. They have performed together throughout Europe, the United States, and Asia.
Arthur Greene was born in New York, and studied at Juilliard with Martin Canin. Mr. Greene was hailed as “a profound musician” by the Washington Post, and “a masterful pianist with a massive technique” by the New York Times.
