Notes and Editorial Reviews
Latin American music is rarely heard in classical music. And wrongly so, as Duo Lontano prove on their new GENUIN album. Babette Hierholzer and Jürgen Appell present arrangements for piano four hands, introducing us to the world of tangos, waltzes, and capriccios of the diverse continent. Among them are compositions by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, whom Chopin once predicted to become the "king of pianists." This is indeed the case, at least in Latin America, where he laid the groundwork and inspired many other wonderful works by Teresa Carreño and José White Lafitte. Duo Lontano also interpret "Latin" tango classics by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla as well as well-known melodies such as "Bésame mucho" or "Malagueña" with plenty of temperament and elegance.
