Duo Stam-Petrovic

Serbian Pianist Stefan Petrovic and Canadian/Dutch cellist Willem Stam have been performing together since they met in The Hague in 2006.

They have performed extensively throughout the Netherlands in a broad range of repertoire. They share a common passion for the understanding of performance practices throughout music history, the study of the development of the concert genre and the integral reading of the written score.

Their programming combines the masterworks for cello and piano with lesser known gems rarely heard on the concert stage.
