Notes and Editorial Reviews

Three pianists, all multi-international competition winners with established solo careers, come together for a stunning collaboration. The artists perform in different combinations on two pianos and in spectacular arrangements of Carmen and West Side Story, featuring all three at the same piano. Beautiful, exciting, and always compelling, this exquisite recording has something for everyone.

“Alan Chow is a pianist without fear, and his horizons are vast.” — Los Angeles Daily News

“Angela Cheng is a powerful performer, technically gifted and endowed with a sensitive, romantic temperament.” — Washington Post
