While audiences will hear the chamber music they know and love, Minsky Duo also presents listeners with provoking works they will soon not forget. Minsky Duo is a fiscally-sponsored affiliate of San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the service of chamber music in California.
