Latin American music is rarely heard in classical music. And wrongly so, as Duo Lontano prove on their new GENUIN CD. Babette Hierholzer and Jürgen Appell present arrangements for piano four hands, introducing us to the world of tangos, waltzes, and capriccios of the diverse continent. Among them are compositions by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, whom Chopin once predicted to become the "king of pianists." This is indeed the case, at least in Latin America, where he laid the groundwork and inspired many other wonderful works by Teresa Carreño and José White Lafitte. Duo Lontano also interpret "Latin" tango classics by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla as well as well-known melodies such as "Bésame mucho" or "Malagueña" with plenty of temperament and elegance.

Music Web International
"These mood changes and rich fare are all captured well by this accomplished duo and that, coupled with the idiomatic arrangements, makes for an entertaining programme. The sound is clear and rich and the Duo’s own notes (in English, German and Spanish) give little anecdotes about the music. All in all, an engaging release." March 2020
Entire critic of Rob Challinor

"... mehr als erfreulich, dass das international aktive Duo hier eine wahre Schatztruhe öffnet. (...) Unter den vier Händen des Duos entfaltet diese entdeckenswerte Musik einen wunderbaren Zauber."
