The twin sisters Pekinel, born in 1953 in Istanbul, learned piano at the age of five at the conservatory of their hometown. At 13 they continued the education in Paris and then went to Frankfurt to study music, philosophy and psychology. They perfected their musical education with Rudolf Serkin, Claudio Arrau, Leon Fleisher and at the Juilliard School in New York. Since the 1970s the Pekinel sisters have been playing successfully as a piano duo all over the world.
