Notes & Reviews:

This new recording presents arrangements for piano 4-hands or two pianos by orchestral works by Arnold Schoenberg (The two Chamber Symphonies and the Five Pieces Op. 16), arranged by Alban Berg, Anton Webern and Schoenberg himself. The arrangements are not merely a piano reduction for practical purposes but can stand on their own, shedding new light on these complex scores, and bringing out new details and sonorities. These are excellent performances by the Italian piano duo Matteo Fossi and Marco Gaggini, who already recorded a successful Bartok Complete Works for 2 Pianos album for Brilliant Classics. The press wrote of the duo's recordings: "The original, overwhelming orchestral tide is here changed into a lean demonstration of pure contents, where the emotions are fully preserved and unveiled through the power of logic." (Claudio Strinati, Il Venerdi di Repubblica)
