Violinist Arianna Warsaw-Fan and cellist Meta Weiss—duoW—burst onto the international music scene when their cutting edge music video, Ghosts and Flowers, went viral on the internet in the fall of 2011. Strongly committed to bringing classical music to new audiences, these two ambitious Juilliard grads launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of a dazzling music video which features their performance of the beautiful and highly virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia in G minor.
Meta and Arianna have been performing together since they first met ten years ago at the prestigious Phillips Academy in Andover, MA. Both recent graduates of the Masters program at Juilliard, Meta and Arianna have been recognized internationally for their astonishing musicianship and brilliant technique, garnering multiple awards and honors, and receiving recognition in major competitions around the world.
Arianna received her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Juilliard School. Her teachers include Masao Kawasaki, Cho-Liang Lin, Lynn Chang, Magdalena Richter, and Almita Vamos.
Meta received her Bachelor of Music degree from Rice University studying with Norman Fischer, where she graduated magna cum laude. In May 2011 she received her Masters of Music degree from The Juilliard School, where she is now pursuing the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts under the tutelage of Joel Krosnick and Darrett Adkins as a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow and a SYLFF Fellow.
