Released shortly after the composer's 60th birthday, this album from The Zoo Duet presents works that deserve to be better known. Taking a line for a second walk is vintage Nyman, conceived originally as an orchestral work for Houston Ballet in 1966 and transcribed for two amplified pianos without any loss of its hypnotic intensity. Water Dances began life as music for Peter Greenaway's film Making A Splash and receives its premiere recording in its five-movement form on this disc. (Music Week)
Leonard Bernstein - Shostakovich: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2, Poulenc: Concerto for Two Pianos (1993)

Shostakovich's two Piano Concertos lack the seriousness of this four concertos for violin or cello. The first is actually a "double" concerto, having an important part for solo trumpet. It's an early but expertly written work sharing the same musical climate as the First Symphony. The Second Concerto was created for the composer's son Maxim, now a well-known conductor. It's a light- hearted, tongue-in-cheek piece with a Romantic slow movement.

The British piano duo Goldstone and Clemmow consists of internationally known artists Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow. They have been recording together, to widespread acclaim, for more than a third of a century.
Cyprien Katsaris, Etsuko Hirose - Russian Ballet Transcriptions for Four Hands and Two Pianos (World Premiere Recordings) (2017

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:15:03 | 171 MB
Label: Piano 21 | Release Year: 2017

Cyprien Katsaris is one of those rare pianists whose technique, interpretive acumen, and intuitive sense combine to astonish his listeners. Typically, he divulges a uniquely eccentric manner at the keyboard: he smiles, gestures oddly with a free hand, frequently looks away from the piano during the thorniest passages, and often rises as he's striking the last chord. Katsaris possesses a broad repertory, taking in works by J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Messiaen, and countless others.

Classical | MP3 320 kbps | 01:58:49 | ~273 Mb
Label: Warner Classics | Tracks: 21 | Rls.date: 2015

Martha Argerichs long career has included many outstanding solo performances, but she has often professed to feeling lonely on stage. This CD showcases the area in which she feels truly at home: her extensive and fruitful collaborations with other first-class musicians. Among the many younger pianists she has taken under her wing at her academy in Lugano are Lilya Zilberstein, who rose to fame in the 1990s and whose sparkling playing is also featured on this disc, as well as Nelson Goerner, whose collaboration with Argerich in Rachmaninovs nostalgic Symphonic Dances is released here for the first time.
Vladimir & Vovka Ashkenazy - Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel: Music for Two Pianos (2009)

Genre: Classical | Label: Decca | # 478 1090 DH | Time: 01:06:01

With this disc, Vladimir Ashkenazy, celebrated for his readings of Rachmaninoff and Chopin, and his son, Vovka, take on music by Debussy and Ravel for two pianos, and the results, utterly unlike virtually anything Ashkenazy père has ever recorded before, make it a real winner. From the electric excitement of the opening En blanc et noir, through the hazy mysteries of Jeux, and the luminous colors of the Rapsodie espagnole, to the inexorable hysteria of La Valse, Ashkenazy père and fils turn in performances that match the music for poise, drive, and technical brilliance. Some might find their sonorities a bit hard-edged at points – should the opening of En blanc et noir and the close of La Valse really be hit so strongly? – but the results are so consistently thrilling that most listeners are likely to be swept away. Recorded in close but clear and vivid digital sound, this disc may not be for every Debussy and Ravel fan, but it should certainly appeal to fans of Ashkenazy.

Andras Schiff and Peter Serkin, internationally celebrated and multi-award winning classical soloists, make their New Series debuts with Music for Two Pianos. Regarded as 2 of the greatest pianists of our time, Schiff and Serkin are very seldom heard - as they are here - as piano duo. With this recording, ECM begins a long-term relationship with Andras Schiff, a musician described by Gramophone magazine as "a unique poetic voice among the pianists".
