Formed in late 2020 whilst students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Duo Eunoia bring together two enterprising young musicians using their talents to infuse sensitivity and excitement into a broad spectrum of repertoire. In 2021, they won 1st Prize in the International Chamber music competition “Spring Sonata” (Lithuania), 2nd Prize in International Luigi Nono Chamber Music Competition (Italy) and participated at European Chamber Courses in Orlando Festival with a full scholarship (The Netherlands). The Eunoia Duo enjoy playing works by many composers, from Bach to Schnittke. One of their many goals is to introduce the audience with less known pieces. With every piece of music, the duo is exploring different parts of oneself and strives for a deeper connection to not only themselves but to each other and most importantly the audience. When the Eunoia Duo are not playing music, they are probably cooking and eating to satisfy Yik’s never ending appetite. Yik Liang Soo, a Malaysian violinist, started his studies under Su Zhu-Yuan. In 2017, Yik continued his music education with Catherine Lord at Wells Cathedral School, UK as a scholarship student. While at Wells, he had many opportunities performing, including: leading the Wells Symphony Orchestra, a tour to Hong Kong and Jersey with his quartet and numerous public recitals in the UK. Yik currently studies with Maya Iwabuchi and Joseph Swensen in the RCS. Elzė Fedorcovaitė, Lithuanian pianist, studied with Prof. Aleksandra Žvirblytė at the National M.K.Ciurlionis Arts School in Vilnius, Lithuania (2008-2020). She currently studies with Fali Pavri and Petras Geniušas at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. As her current teacher in RCS, Fali Pavri, comments, “be careful, she’s very competitive”, Elze has participated in many international competitions and achieved many prizes. Most notably, Grand Prix and 1st Prizes in ‘Music Without Borders’ in Lithuania (2014) and ‘Stockholm International Music Competition 2019’, along with being named the best pianist of the Polish Music Festival in the memory of Frederic Chopin in 2016. Elze had many performance opportunities including concerts with Chamber and symphonic Orchestras in Poland and Lithuania. She has also performed recitals in Denmark, Germany, France, Poland and Italy.
