Notes & Reviews:

The works on this release represent 20th century piano duo repertoire that is inspired by dances from different nationalities. Even in the works that do not have a specific dance in their title, there is nonetheless the implication of a strong dance-like character. The Ehlen-Tai Piano Duo had its beginnings at the University of Illinois and joined the Steinway Artist Ensemble Roster in 2012. The ensemble performs in recitals all across America.
