The range of virtuoso piano music recorded by the Danhel-Kolb Duo on their GENUIN debut CD extends from old master Dvořák to the 1980s. The magnificent Slavonic Dances influenced by Brahms bounce past us full of resilience, followed by the romantic sweep of a Sonata by Zdenek Fibich; the Imperial bliss of polkas and waltzes is interrupted with biting humour in Erwin Schulhoff's Ironies. Finally, a world premiere recording: Ilja Hurník's elegantly brilliant and rhythmically gripping Variations on a Theme of Pergolesi. Not only inspiring piano playing, but also the highest number of points for an exciting repertoire!

American Record Guide
"There are some wonderful recordings of Hungarian Dances and Rhapsodies in piano duet arrangements by Brahms and Liszt, but this is the first recording I have seen devoted to original duets by Czech composers. (...) Good sound and excellent booklet notes complete a very enjoyable release."
