Notes & Reviews:
Among the four sets of piano duets that Johannes Brahms wrote are the Ungarische Tanze, or Hungarian Dances. The first performance of the Hungarian Dances was in 1868 at a house concert, where Brahms and his beloved friend Clara Schumann played the Dances from his manuscript. The Hungarian Dances found immediate popularity. The Kantorski-Pope Duo is a three-time recipient of First Prize in the Graves Duo Piano Competition. Valrie Kantorski is the principal keyboardist of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra, and Ann Almond Pope has studied piano with Edward Kilenyi and repertoire with Ernst von Dohnanyi.
