— Lilya Zilberstein
When Daria Marshinina and Linda Leine first sat together at the piano in Lilya Zilberstein’s class in 2011, they experienced a magical moment: this is where two kindred spirits immediately recognised their mutual musical ideal and quickly became inseparable at the keyboard.
They gained essential impulses in the renowned duo-class led by Hans-Peter and Volker Stenzl at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock, where they also regularly worked with the Chipak-Kushnir piano duo. They also studied with the piano duo Genova & Dimitrov and Andreas Groethuysen, Jacques Rouvier and Pavel Gililov.
Their programmes are mainly characterised by their interest in the diversity of the repertoire: solo, four-handed and two-piano. Last but not least, their Russian and Latvian roots also have a significant influence.
Daria Marshinina and Linda Leine have already given concerts in Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Latvia, and the USA. They are both scholarship holders of the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung.
Linda Leine (born in Riga, Latvia) studied piano at the Emīla Dārziņa Music School with Ilze Treija and then continued her studies at Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music in the class of Arnis Zandmanis. She continued her studies with Lilya Zilberstein and Burkhard Kehring in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg. She then went on to do her master’s degree in solo piano with Konrad Elser at the Lübeck Academy of Music.

First under the care of Michael Endres and Gabriele Kupfernagel at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler, then with Anna Vinnitskaya at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg.
