About

Formed in 2017 at the Krzyżowa Music Festival in Poland, the Kapoor-Leung Duo is comprised of violinist Usha Kapoor and pianist Edward Leung. Both of Asian-American background and currently living in Europe, Ms. Kapoor and Mr. Leung present innovative programming in the duo repertoire, especially through their championing of American music. 

Winners of the Tunnell Trust Music Club Awards 2020 and the First Prize at the inaugural 2018 Birmingham International Piano Chamber Music Festival and Competition, the Kapoor-Leung Duo maintains a busy concert schedule with performances throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. Upcoming performances include their Wigmore Hall debut and a 2022 recital tour throughout Scotland, as well as appearances at the Winchester Chamber Music Festival, Ulverston International Music Festival, Wye Valley Music, Marden House Concerts, and a debut album release under Resonus Classics featuring works by American composers of the last century. Kapoor-Leung Duo are also Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now artists for Germany and the UK respectively.

Past performances include Kings Place in London as part of MusicWorks Sundays at Kings Place, St Alphege’s Church in Solihull, the Bradshaw Hall at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and duo residencies at Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival and Sophie’s Barn in Oxfordshire. They have recently been selected for the 2020 – 2021 ChamberStudio Mentorship scheme as the first ensemble to be mentored by Tasmin Little. They are also grateful to have received guidance from Alasdair Beatson, Mihaela Martin, Pascal Nemirovski, Harald Schoneweg, and Daniel Tong.
