Notes & Reviews:

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the American piano duo Claire Aebersold and Ralph Neiweem, this disc represents a selection of some of their personal favorite original and transcribed works for piano four hands. This CD features the world-premiere recording of the 'Great Movements' Sonata for Four Hands; a welcome virtuoso addition to the neglected contemporary repertoire for piano duet by New York composer Patrick Byers, along with original composer transcriptions of works by Mozart, Ravel, Liszt and Respighi.
