Gray-Magamedova Duo

The Gray-Magamedova Duo has been performing together since 2019 and enjoys giving concerts throughout Europe, the United States, and the world. In 2022, they became laureates of the European Chamber Music Competition. As Young Artists in Residence at the Scandinavian Cello School in Denmark, they participate in numerous music outreach projects as well as public concerts throughout Scandinavia. Since their debut at Lincoln Center at Paul Hall (New York City) in 2019, the duo has continued to perform around the world, in venues such as the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Theatre for Digital Arts in Dubai, and the Tajikistan National Opera. In France, they have been invited on "Générations France Musique, le Live" as well as to give recital programmes, which they carefully design to convey a unique concept. Cellist Johannes Gray received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, and pianist Anastasiya Magamedova received her Bachelor's degree from the Juilliard School in New York. As a duo, they continue their studies at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris.

His solo engagements have taken him across four continents, including performances at the Berlin Philharmonie, the festivals of Ravinia and Verbier, Lincoln Center, SuperCello (Beijing), and the Cello Biënnale Amsterdam.

During his studies with Hans Jørgen Jensen in Chicago, Jérôme Pernoo at the Conservatoire national Supérieur de musique in Paris, and Frans Helmerson at the Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin, Johannes became a laureate of numerous national and international competitions and was featured on multiple television and radio stations.
