Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two Zig-Zag artists unite for a disc that includes an original Mozart work (the Sonata in D major) as well as transcriptions for two pianos. Recorded on two historic instruments from the collection of Edwin Beunk, this is an operatic and symphonic conversation. It is also an illustration of the highly fruitful collaboration of two singular pianists as well as a new recording featuring Yury Martynov, who earned a Choc de Classica for his Beethoven & Liszt disc.
