The goal of the San Francisco International Music Festival (sfmf) is to preserve the art form of piano duo by bringing people of all ages together through performance, international festivals, educational experiences and outreach programs. Celebrating its 11th year, sfmf sponsors The Milton & Peggy Salkind International Piano Duo Festival, which is the United States’ first and foremost international music festival solely dedicated to the art of piano duo. Sfmf is proud to present the 5th season of this unique piano duo concert series that captures the spirit of the region that originally inspired the creation of the festival in the United States.  The 5th Salkind Festival (August 7-10, 2014) featured A Baltic Voyage, which showcased the rich musical heritage of the countries that border the Baltic Sea - Russia, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Poland and Germany.

"The festival audiences were not only gifted with the musical treasures of

"A Baltic Voyage," but were witness to artistic history being made."
