“Shiry has a ravishing tone, and played like this, the viola seemed to combine the soaring beauty of a violin with cello-like strength and warmth” – Cambrian News

Review from Cambrian News                                        Review from The Examiner

Shiry Rashkovsky and Robin Green form a highly charged and musically thoughtful duo.

Having found an instant connection while playing chamber music at the world-renowned Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music sessions, Robin and Shiry are rapidly gaining recognition as one of the few established viola and piano duos. Recent successes have included a recital tour throughout England and Wales, and the 2015-16 season will include further exciting explorations of the viola and piano repertoire.
