Celebrating the sheer good fun of the two piano genre.
Pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go share an electric musical connection that speaks directly to audiences. Described as ‘positively ecstatic’, ‘masterful’ and ‘profoundly moving’, the pair delights in sharing the unique combination of intimacy and dynamism of the piano duo. Their innovative and thoughtful programming explores seldom-performed works and new music alongside much-loved staples of the repertoire. Their 2017 Melbourne Recital Centre series celebrates three favourite aspects of the genre in three distinct and compelling programs: unique resonances, evocative and colourful sonic landscapes, and infectious energy.
Takeoff! encapsulates the sheer good fun of the two piano genre. At the heart of Milhaud’s toe-tapping romp, Poulenc’s powerfully charged sonata for two pianos and Mozart’s sparkling wit and joyful elegance are also moments of great poignancy and tenderness. The Duo shares the intimacy, intricacy and energy of the piano duo, bringing a fresh approach to these much-loved favourites.
