About the album

The works of the French composer Olivier Messiaen contain in various forms the essential elements of all communication: observation, pity and empathy, trusting approaches to intimacy, with hope, faith and security seen as the certain, or at least dreamed-of, pinnacle of perfection after the varied and changing human conceptions of a divine paradise. Messiaen's music, in the burning intensity of its faith, courageously ecumenical, is based on the two virtues of Saint Francis: patience and forbearance. They will be of great assistance in the blustering, the murmering and the singing of the two pianos which create such friction, pleasure and fulfillment in the 'Visions' as they play both with and against each other in the rhythmic as well as the emotional and religious sense. As Messiaen himself described it, the precious gems of the apocalypse will ring, dance and collide with each other, giving color and fragance to the light of life.
Begoña Uriarte and Karl-Hermann Mrongovius - who have both won prizes in a number of international competitions for piano duo - are in fact the only duo currently playing regularly together who also individually enjoy international solo careers in both the concert and recording fields. Their extraordinarily diverse duo repertoire ranges from pre-classic works to first performances of pieces (often dedicated to them) by contemporary composers. ... while it is clear that as a piano duo they have hardly any competition, what is truly surprising and convincing is their solo playing, which is technically perfect, wonderfully colorful and full of intelligence...
