Notes & Reviews:

Vittorio Bresciani and Francesco Nicolosi formed the Franz Liszt Piano Duo in 1998 with the aim of promoting Liszt's symphonic work through the composer's own transcriptions for two pianos. The Duo has performed at many prestigious concert venues, including the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, and the Arena of Verona. The Duo also made its United States début at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.

Classic Voice
Now consolidated experience of many years, the piano duo formed by Vittorio Bresciani and Francesco Nicolosi is now one of the most reliable intermediaries be reliable in making the Liszt symphonic musician finds the same determination for its authenticity on the two keyboards, thanks to a writing, as is the case with transcriptions of Beethoven symphonies, can evoke the most variegated orchestral fabric. Thus we can see in this running profi so characteristic in its harmonic and timbral insinuating facet of that masterpiece which is the Faust Symphony, full of foreboding and enveloping abandon what is articulated along the wide arch that blends the spirit of the symphonic poem with that of the symphony until we reach the sublimation, after the sequence of 'three portraits', in quell'Andante enlightened mystic light fi ltrata choir, excellent to Weimar.

American Record Guide
Proniewicz is a Polish violinist, and Jakobidze-Gitman is from Russia. They play all of this music beautifully, particularly the two Tellefsen sonatas, which are real gems.
