You want to look over the shoulder of a famous composer? The piano duo Olha Chipak and Oleksiy Kushnir make it possible on their new GENUIN CD: Johannes Brahms later re-worked his sonata for two pianos into the famous piano quintet. And the two pianists present this sonata, much more than a mere preparatory work, with all his passion and with such technical poise that you do not miss the timbre of the strings at all and the orchestral colors of the Haydn variations provided by two sets of 88 keys with equal brilliance! The seldom-played variations on a theme by Schumann are, after all, a melancholy homage on the loss of his friend the spirit of Schumann and Brahms combined. Repertoire value and sound: magnificent!
