Notes & Reviews:

Here's an original program of varied music that hangs together very well. The album contains seven piano duos by seven different composers. All of these works are products of the 20th Century. What binds the program together so well is how the peices are similar to one another in terms of the simple harmonic realm in which they reside. All in all, this is an enjoyable program of rare and very fine works for piano duo, well performed.
