Duo Plus


The duo perform Bernd Alois Zimmermann: 'Dialoge' (two pianos and orchestra); performance starts at 13:25

To play these works is a challenge with only two possible outcomes: to gracefully live up to it, like our pianists do, or to die trying. They survive with brilliance and we continue to be most thankful for it.
