Notes & Reviews:

Although other composers have essayed the "fourhand" piano medium, it is principally Mozart and Schubert who wrote for it prolifically. Despite being considered "Hausmusik" - pieces designed for domestic use by amateur players - the intimate setting received some of their greatest creative inspirations. Franz Schubert's 'Fantasy in F minor' is among the finest of all his piano works, while the 'Andantino varie is one of the most exquisite sets of variations in the entire literature. Less common, the works for two pianos offer each interpreter a greater freedom than those for piano with four hands. This is particularly true of the Mozart 'Sonata in D major' where the music represents a genuine tour de force for each performer.

'What a feast is here! Superb, radiant, colourful singing of a perfect selection of Weelkes' music. A finer selection more persuasively sung would be hard to imagine. Buy it' (Organists' Review)

'Hyperion's recording is excellent and the booklet, with all texts and good notes, is a model' (Classic CD)
