“The growing synergy between tenor Andrew Goodwin and pianist Daniel de Borah has been one of the most exciting developments on the Australian performance scene in recent years.”
- Limelight Magazine, Huntington Estate Music Festival 2013

Hailed for their communicative and penetrating interpretations across a wide range of song repertoire, Andrew Goodwin (tenor) and Daniel de Borah (piano) have captivated audiences across Australia and beyond since their initial collaborations in 2006. Both are graduates of the St. Petersburg State Conservatory where they formed a close bond during their years of study. They share a love of the Russian song tradition which, alongside 19th century German lieder, forms the core of their programs.

The duo represents an important part of their respective artistic profiles, and together they have appeared at major venues and festivals in the UK and Australia including the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, Townsville, Wigmore Hall, the Oxford Lieder Festival, the Melbourne Recital Centre, and the Canberra International, Huntington Estate, Coriole and Port Fairy Spring Music Festivals. Andrew and Daniel have also recorded numerous song cycles and recitals for ABC Classic FM.
