About the album
Original works and contemporary arrangements (all made with the approval of the composers!) of opera overtures and extracts from operas and operettas, all written for two pianos four hands in matchless performances on two incredible sounding 19th century Erard grand pianos. Both Julian Reynolds and Peter Lockwood are members of the musical staff of the Netherlands Opera and they give these pieces the performances of a lifetime with superb duo playing and a complete understanding of style (and wit!) of the works .
