The Clavierinet Duo of Julia Heinen, clarinet and Dmitry Rachmanov, piano, hail from Los Angeles, where they serve as professors at California State University, Northridge. The duo has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe to public and critical acclaim, performing a wide range of repertoire, often featuring newly discovered works. The duo’s first album: “Latin Romance,” featuring works by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Eychenne and Guastavino was released in June 2013 by Tresóna Multimedia.
As avid chamber players, the duo has frequently collaborated with top musicians in various ensembles. They are among the founding members of the Tapestry Ensemble, which premiered several works written specially for them by the leading Los Angeles composers. Their first album, “New York Moments,” was released in 2012 by the Navona label to critical acclaim.
Both dedicated teachers, the duo has had residencies in many top conservatories and universities in twenty-four states in the last three years, performing recitals, giving masterclasses, conducting workshops and performing at and organizing international festivals, such as the International Clarinet Association’s ClarinetFest® 2011.
