Peter and Zoltán Katona have given recitals in major concert venues throughout the world including performances at Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, The Konzerthaus in Vienna, Suntory Hall in Tokyo. They played together with renowned musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma and world class ensembles such as the BBC Concert Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. Their arrangements and recordings featured in the US blockbuster TV series ‘Fargo’ and in the Broadway show ‘The River’ featuring Hollywood star Hugh Jackman.

Peter and Zoltán settled in Liverpool 20 years ago, a city recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘World Capital of Pop’ and learnt to transfer from strictly classical, into more popular musical genres. Besides Bach and the Beatles master works by Handel, Django Reinhardt and some compositions written by the Katona Twins make this programme as unique as possible.
