Notes & Reviews:

The PianoDuo Takahashi

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Duo Takahashi-Lehmann (they have been performing together since 2009) are the best of the current lot. Audite's sound and excellent booklet notes complement a stunning performance by this young duo. The amount of excitement they build at the climactic points in The Rite of Spring can leave you breathless. I also found a fascinating video clip on line of the two interviewed and playing excerpts (at one piano). Conlon Nancarrow wrote his Sonatina for player piano. Arnulf Herrmann wrote his three-movement Hausmusik in deference to the styles and traditions of playing piano duets at home back in the 19th Century. For variety, performance, sound, booklet, and uncovering new works, my choice this time around is Duo Takahashi-Lehmann.
