Dr. Liana Pailodze Harron (piano) and Dr. Ksenija Komljenović (percussion) are the members of Vesna Duo. Harron is from the Republic of Georgia, while Komljenović is from Serbia. According to their website, together they “embrace their dynamic backgrounds while exploring a diverse blend of musical traditions, cultures and styles.”

Their 2022 recording of “The Rite of Spring” by Igor Stravinsky was described by Kira Grunenberg of National Public Radio as a “masterclass in performative focus, as well as an exquisite demonstration of musician chemistry to the most natural and audibly entrancing of results…unto itself, Vesna Duo’s take on ‘The Rite of Spring’ is impressive, unexpected, whimsical and beautifully captured.”
