Brilliant Brahms

Christiane Bayer

With Brahms’ Allegro of the ‘Sonata for two pianos op. 34b’, they score straightaway a fulminant introduction. The retained initial accords, followed by virtuous sparkling passages are utilized by the Pekinels in order to conjure exhilarating worlds of sound even in the most compressed point. They lead through the main movement of 14 minutes with a clear line and a balanced weight of sound tracing the enmeshed thread with a keen sense. Thus they create a perfect symbiosis of sensing sound and sparkling evolvement of colors.
