A Great Pleasure

Michael Wersin

One can develop real passion for the magic that can be created by two concert grands: especially if you talk about such a furious Duo as the Pekinels. Their strength is their perfect congruence of their interpretation, their absolute homogeneity in all levels. In the Sonata for two pianos op. 34 b, which requires a maximum of creative power, the Pekinels are in their element: making hear with the full color-chart of their striking performance such life’s fulfilment grazed by the Autumn in Brahms’ melancholic surges, which already speaks mightily from this relative early opus (originated in 1864). A great pleasure.
