Another piano video I know I know please don’t unsubscribe!!! Patrick will be back in our next video, I promise! He’s been away on tour with his band quite a bit lately which is why I did another solo video. And of course I chose to record Vivaldi’s Summer to celebrate the first day of Fall, because I’m really smart and like to think things through before doing them. 😂 🤷
We actually have 10 (!) new videos recorded and ready to share with you really soon, both on this channel and our Brooklyn Classical channel. Just finishing up final edits but we can’t wait to share that project with you. Stay tuned! And happy Fall! 🍂🎃🍎

BROOKLYN DUO BIO:
Founded in 2014, Brooklyn Duo has quickly established itself as one of today’s most successful classical crossover ensembles. Through its creative arrangements and live video performances, the piano and cello duo has garnered a huge following, with over 850,000 YouTube subscribers, and over 150 million streams annually on platforms such as Spotify and Pandora Radio.
In 2014, on a whim, the couple arranged and recorded two pop covers and released them on YouTube. Shakira noticed the duo’s cover of “Empire” and promoted it to her 130 million-plus fan base, saying: “We’re loving Brooklyn Duo’s piano/cello cover of Empire! Great work guys.” The boost that resulted from that exposure and the positive response they were getting on YouTube encouraged the couple to continue creating videos. (Other notable shout-outs since then include ones from Taylor Swift, a-ha and Pearl Jam.)
Today, Marnie and Patrick have released over 100 videos on their Brooklyn Duo YouTube channel and 10 albums of covers, spanning artists from The Beatles to Metallica to Ariana Grande. In 2016, the couple started a second YouTube channel, Brooklyn Classical, with the goal of introducing classical music to a larger audience through high quality, live performances. Brooklyn Classical often hosts high-profile guest artists, including the world-renowned Dover and Escher string quartets, percussionist Ivan Trevino and cellist Cicely Parnas.
In 2017, Marnie and Patrick partnered with Carnegie Hall and Ensemble Connect to produce a cover of a-ha’s “Take On Me”. The video went viral and garnered millions of views in just a few months. Popular classical music stations Classic FM and WQXR regularly share Brooklyn Duo’s music on their social media pages, with Classic FM calling the duo “masters of the artfully planned pop cover.” Their music has also been featured on several television shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, and America’s Got Talent.
