THE AUDITORI TEULADA MORAIRA will play host to American piano duo the Naughton twins on Thursday March 8.

Highly recommended by Concerts Costa Blanca, identical twins Christina and Michelle Naughton trained at the Curtis Institute of Music and at the Juilliard School. They earned bachelor’s degrees in solo piano performance in 2011 at Curtis, where they both received the Festorazzi Prize and master’s degrees from Juilliard in 2013.

Pianist Joseph Kalichstein taught the sisters at Juilliard and said, “When they play together, they seem to have one mind and one body – it’s extraordinary – like one person with two hands playing.”

The Naughton twins’ talent for playing the piano appeared early. Christina first soloed with an orchestra at age 9; Michelle followed at 10.

But it didn’t occur to them to perform together until the sisters were in high school and invited to play as a duo at the dedication of a concert piano.

“We said, ‘Sure, we’ll give it a try,’ ” Michelle told the American press.

“We didn’t really expect anything.

“We worked on it, we performed, and something magical happened. We looked at each other and said, ‘I love this.’ And we never looked back.”

Tickets cost €17 and are available online via and from the box office –open Wednesday – Saturday: 11.00am – 1.00pm and 6.00pm – 8.00pm.
