Pianist Rolf Lovland and violinist Fionnuala Sherry

Secret Garden, the award-winning Irish-Norwegian duo, will stage a concert in Shenzhen Concert Hall on Dec 29.

Pianist Rolf Lovland and violinist Fionnuala Sherry met in 1994 and their close understanding of music led them to form Secret Garden the same year. Secret Garden won first prize at the Eurovision Song Contest with the 24-word composition "Nocturne." Their albums "Songs From a Secret Garden" and "White Stones" have achieved popularity throughout the world.

Lovland, from Kristiansand, Norway, showed his talent for composition when he started his first band at the age of 9. He went to study at music schools in Kristiansand and received his master's degree in music from the Norwegian Academy of Music. Lovland is the holder of a Norwegian Grammy Award and was once named the most successful pop song composer in Norway.

Fionnuala Sherry was born into a family of musicians in Naas, Kildare, Ireland. Sherry graduated from the College of Music, Trinity College, Dublin, and has a passion for classical music.
