Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's compositions for piano duet embrace works for study as well as those designated for aristocratic acquaintances and friends. This release presents two recordings of the complete works; one on a modern piano and the second on a chronologically accurate reproduction fortepiano.. Sisters Amy and Sara Hamann captivate in perfect sync.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Detailed study and repeated hearings reveal possibly the greatest of many fugues in the late works of Beethoven. The performances here are both quite good. Excellent recorded sound and good booklet notes complete a release that will supply listeners with contrasting and complementary views of some great music.
