Notes & Reviews:

As is true of the medium for duo piano music as a whole, Pierce and Jonas' repertoire consists of original works and arrangements, romantic and modern as well as European and American music. In their four hands, the range of the twopiano repertoire heard on this recording, its virtuosity, its sonic possibilities as well as its expressive powers can be head and understood. Called "consummate technicians with marvelous articulation" and noted for their "crystalline performances," this year marks the 30th anniversary of this duo-piano team.
