Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hecht and Shapiro made big news last fall when they won the Munich International Duo-Piano Competition... [They] maintain remarkable rapport, answering one another with heightened communicative skills and often sounding like one massive instrument capable of dazzling feats of dexterity... The performance is gloriously etched, with virtuosity and taste merging into a pianistic earful. Hecht and Shapiro take chances, travel to the edge and come up victorious.

-- Donald Rosenberg, Cleveland Plain Dealer
