Notes & Reviews:
In 2007 the husband-and-wife team TwoPianists 'burst onto the scene' (James Harrington, American Record Guide) with their double-disc The Complete Works for Two Pianos by Sergei Rachmaninoff. Two years later, proving their success was no fluke, the couple released another stellar disc, simply entitled TwoPianists. What followed was ordinary yet significant: life, children, company (they are founders of TwoPianists Records) and health. It is therefore with immense pride that TwoPianists presents the Bach Goldberg Variations in the formidable arrangement done for two pianos by Reger and Rheinberger.

Magalhaes and Schumann are an exceptional team. Their musicality is matched by their technical and interpretive abilities. The spontaneity found all through this recording underscores the communication between performers. I found a video on line of the two rehearsing the Goldbergs, where they clearly enjoyed working through a variation. Magalhaes and Schumann never lose track of the original Bach. Theirs is an enlightening performance that will remain on my listening stack for years to come.
