Rarely can we say that a name defines a person more accurately than is the case with Ivan Vihor (Whirlwind). His entry into the music scene was fast, passionate, powerful and left a mark just like a whirlwind! Although very young, he has set clear goals for himself which he now systematically achieves, primarily excellence and originality in the selected and presented repertoire, which has a special meaning to him.
The theatricality of the combination of 2 pianos or a piano four-hands, with all of its expressive capabilities, colour palette and virtuosic effects, served as the perfect medium to express the magical world of stories, feelings, destiny and everything else the fascinating world of theatre hides.
