Violinist Arianna Warsaw-Fan and cellist Meta Weiss - duoW - burst onto the international music scene when their cutting edge music video, Ghosts and Flowers, went viral on the internet in the fall of 2011.
Strongly committed to bringing classical music to new audiences, these two ambitious Juilliard Masters grads launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of this dazzling film which features their performance of the beautiful and highly virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia. In collaboration with award-winning actor/director Roderick Hill and costume/set designer Caitlin Ward, duoW's creative vision resulted in a ground-breaking video that transcends the confines of classical music, proclaimed by Nylon Magazine as "a major announcement" and with visuals described by La Scena Musicale as "a mix of Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette' and Stoker's 'Dracula' alongside graffiti and modern cityscapes."
Meta and Arianna have been performing together for over twelve years since they first met at the Phillips Academy in Andover, MA. Both are musicians and educators with postgraduate degrees from Juilliard, and both have been recognized internationally for their astonishing musicianship, with multiple awards for solo performances and major competitions around the world. These talented young musicians have performed on prestigious concert stages worldwide including venues in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, London, Paris, Switzerland, Peru and many more.
