Notes & Reviews:

Programs dedicated to composers on the year of their anniversary aren't anything out of the ordinary. But when their works go together as well as they do in this new GENUIN CD by the internationally-renowned Stenzl Piano Duo, we sit up and take notice. This CD by the duo that has won a dozen international competitions and hold the world's only piano duo professorship is as organic as a concert program. In an amazingly taut musical offering, both phenomenal pianists build bridges that span centuries, ranging from Kurtg's pointillist miniatures, Bach's masterful tapestry of voices, and Ligeti's compelling rhythms to Reger's moving homage to Beethoven.
