our past

The TulipDuo was born in 2016 in Amsterdam, from the union of two young Italian musicians, Eleonora De Poi (Violin and Viola) and Massimiliano Turchi (Piano).

Both graduated in Italy with full marks, they then continued their studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory where they graduated brilliantly in 2018.

Formed by teachers of the caliber of Ilya Grubert, Maria Milstein and Frank van de Laar, they have won various prizes in International Chamber Music Competitions during their studies in Amsterdam and have performed throughout the Netherlands.

They have been present in concert seasons of concert halls and other events in various countries including the Netherlands, Italy, England (Royal Albert Hall), Switzerland and China.

Eleonora recently graduated in Viola with full marks at the “B. Maderna” Conservatory of Cesena.

Eleonora plays an ancient Italian violin from 1673.
