23 Apr OUR CD “ENSUITE”
The “domestic” quality of much four-hands piano playing impacted on the style of many original works for this ensemble.
While several symphonic and choral works were transcribed for four hands, primarily for the purpose of allowing composition students to familiarize themselves with seldom-performed large-scale works, many pieces whose first destination was the four-hands duet have certain homely features, a tinge of irony, or simply mirror other pastimes which used to entertain the bourgeoisie.
This is the case with several of the works recorded in this CD.
