Notes & Reviews:

Katia and Marielle Labèque present an inspired and uplifting program of American music for two pianos that marks the duo's return to repertoire they pioneered in the 1980s. The Labèques' innovative interpretation for Phillips of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue launched a stellar international career and was one of the first gold records in classical music. This new release from KML Records features the sisters' new look at Gershwin's immortal Rhapsody coupled with Irwin Kostal's arrangement of music from Leonard Bernstein's beloved musical West Side Story. Kostal penned the original orchestration of West Side Story and his work won both an Oscar® and a Grammy Award.
