Worbey & Farrell are internationally acclaimed concert pianists with a wicked sense of humour. They are accredited Steinway artists, have played with the world’s leading symphony orchestras, achieved millions of hits on YouTube, and entertained all over the globe with their barnstorming blend of sparky comedy and utterly sensational piano playing.
Favourites include their own arrangements of Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue, Carnival of the Animals, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Addinsell’s Warsaw Concerto amongst many other favourites. Their work is diverse: From a two-month sell-out run of the Canadian smash-hit play, Two Pianos Four Hands, in Vienna, Austria, to performing in shows with the late Mickey Rooney across the pond. They are regulars on BBC Radio and their work regularly takes them to South Africa, Australia, South Korea, Portugal, Austria, Canada and Japan. They have published many of their arrangements and have two popular albums entitled Evocations and Leyenda.
