The sisters, Maria and Nathalia, are not related to the legendary violinist, Nathan Milstein, but come from the “other Milstein” family of musicians in Russia. Their grandfather, Yaakov, was a celebrity professor at the Moscow Conservatoire whose most famous pupil is Elisabeth Leonskaja who continues to give joint concerts with Maria Milstein. Their father, Sergei, is a pianist who was highly prized by none other than Sviatoslav Richter – and his two daughters are now more and more in the musical spotlight. The violinist, Maria, has won an ARD music competition with the Van Baerle Trio. Nathalia is a pianist like her father and in 2015 was the first woman to win the Dublin International Piano Competition. As a duo they have appeared in venues such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, BOZAR in Brussels and the Philharmonie in Essen.
