Notes and Editorial Reviews

After La Valse à mille temps (FUG 577), Jan Michiels and Inge Spinette (the Yin-Yang Duo) return with a new two-piano programme for Fuga Libera. "This recording pays tribute to Bach, Bartók and Kurtág, and also to two legendary piano duos: Dittá and Béla Bartók, and Márta and György Kurtág. We don't compose music ourselves; that's why we have composed . . . a programme; with a "monument" by Bartók - one of the greatest pianists of his time - accompanied by Bach chorales in a Kurtágian landscape . . ." (Jan Michiels). A recording that highlights the strength of the union of two minds, which - like Dittá and Béla Bartók, Read more Márta and György Kurtág, and . . . Inge Spinette and Jan Michiels - can phrase music with a rare degree of intensity and acuity. Read less
