Notes & Reviews:

Piano duets performance composed for one (four hands) and two keyboard instruments date from early 17th c. England, reaching a real peak in the second half of the 19th c. when compositions for two pianos, some of considerable complexity, flourished. Together with the development of the post-Liszt piano school, the difficulty for simultaneous execution by both pianists increased many fold. The three virtuoso works for one and two pianos, composed 1890-1970 and performed here by Irina Shishkina and Maya Berdieva, cover nearly a century of Russian music in all its stylistic diversity.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
This is an unusual disc, manufactured in Mexico with two Russian pianists in a Russian program; and the primary language on the disc and booklet is Spanish. The production values are a notch below what I usually see - picture and artwork, The two ladies are definitely from the traditional Russian school of piano playing. There is an emphasis on brilliance and strength, with a few forays into quieter, lyrical passages.
