Sonja und Shanti Sungkono

© Sabine Wenzel
The twin sisters Sonja and Shanti Sungkono were born in Jakarta and have been living in Berlin for nearly 20 years. After their basic education in Indonesia, they studied at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. They are performing with two pianos as well as with four-handed pianos. Their repertoire consists from the early classic to present. They also emphasize works of Asian and of course Indonesian composers (e.g. Trisutji Kamal), who are virtually unknown in the local Berlin concert life, or works of western composers, who work with elements of Indonesian music (e.g. Colin McPhee).
