She works at the Athens Conservatory as a piano teacher and piano
accompanist since 2009. Together with Victoria-Fjoralba Kiazimi she
formed the “Piano Duo Specchio” in Greece, Athens in 2013. She is the
pianist of «Rosarte Children's Choir» since 2010.
"Piano Duo SPECCHIO" was founded in 2013 by Victoria Fjoralba Kiazimi and Jenny Soulkouki. This artistic collaboration was more a necessity rather than an idea. Their common music experiences, their life-lasting friendship both as students but also as teachers later on at the Athens Conservatory made this piano duo a ‘must’ and not an ‘option’.
By today they have performed in Europe and Asia but also in numerous cities around Greece. Presenting repertoires ranging from classical to baroque and contemporaries, Victoria & Jenny have performed in concert halls, museums, piano festivals and music conservatories.
Believing in their natural talent but working tirelessly to achieve excellence, they have been doing what they love most:
Transform their passion for music into a powerful force for society.
