Notes & Reviews:

Katia and Marielle Labeque present a fascinating collection of rarely heard pieces by Stravinsky (Concerto for two pianos, Three Easy Pieces, Five Easy Pieces, Five Fingers, Tango, Ragtime) and Debussy (En Blanc et Noir). Two composers who completely transformed the sound worlds they had inherited. To re-discover this sense of innovation, the Labeques refract these works through a prism of visual art. On the bonus DVD, video artist Tal Rosner presents his interpretations of the music in images that perfectly capture its rhythm and plasticity.
