The Viney-Grinberg Piano Duo enjoys an international profile in duo piano performance and scholarship as one of the Ensembles-in-Residence at the University of Queensland. While maintaining a performance career involving festivals, major series, live radio broadcasts, and orchestras, Dr Liam Viney and Dr Anna Grinberg also translate their experience into music performance research and teaching practice through the UQ Creative Collaboratorium.

The Duo’s innovative and creative approach has resulted in collaborations with composers, artists, dancers, choreographers and other established performing ensembles - as well as book chapters, articles and scholarly seminars and presentations. The duo is committed to exploring classics of the two-piano repertoire, but also contributes to the ongoing expansion of that literature through commissioning composers - fifteen new works have been written for them to date, and they have performed world and Australian premieres of music by composers such as Matthew Hindson, John Adams and Arvo Part.

Recent performance highlights include the "Jacaranda Series" (Santa Monica, U.S.), the Canberra International Music Festival opening Gala Concert, and the Queensland Music Festival. Variously described as “magnificent” (Canberra City News, 2013), “barnstorming” (The Australian, 2012) and “unforgettable - sure to be Best of 2011 - the most compelling case for the beauty and variety of two piano repertory this reviewer has ever heard” (Los Angeles Times, 2011),
