Notes and Editorial Reviews

About the same time as the release of this album, the Bax & Chung Duo, (Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung,) were heard over American Public Media’s nationally syndicated radio program Performance Today. The couple played their own arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango, which is also heard on this album along with their colorful arrangement for piano-four hands of Stravinsky's Pétrouchka. The eloquent Waltzes, Op. 39 by Brahms, arranged for piano duet, is also featured.

 Bax and Chung July 18, 2014 By Sylvia Romero (San Jose, CA) See All My Reviews "Admittedly, they are piano virtuosi. I don't care about Stravinsky pieces. I do object to their treatment of some of the Brahms waltzes. One does not improvise or try to change or improve those wonderful pieces. Again, as I said they are very talented performers, but I would think about purchasing anything by them again." Report Abuse
