As a chamber musician Razvan is often touring in Europe and abroad with Andreea Stoica as pianist. They established „Duo Stoica” in 1996 and they are always receiving excellent reviews and stir big applause on the ecstatic audiences.

Hearing the two musicians together is like listening to one sole instrument with two complementary colours.
