Pianists Vicki Ray and Aron Kallay have given hundreds of world premieres in Los Angeles and across the country. Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times called them, “exquisite... every sound sounded considered, alive, worthy of our wonder,” when they premiered John Cage’s The 10,000 Things in 2012. Their repertoire ranges from icons of the genre to newly composed works crafted specifically for their unusual and special resources.
