'...the two pianists respond with a unity that shimmers through [Sadko's] opening seascape and dances through its accelerandos...A worthy performance of an accomplished work.' BBC

'A wonderful release...with pianists so entirely at one with each other, the result is a very effective, evocative and exhilarating performance.' International Record Review

'The transcription of the Capriccio Espagnol provides a most brilliant finish to the recital.' Audiophile Audition


These two talented pianists bring their combined skill and virtuosity to bear in three colourful arrangements encompassing Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular music for orchestra. Widely considered one of Rimsky-Korsakov's finest orchestral works, Scheherazade is equally engaging and thrilling arranged for two pianos. The famous Arabian Nights story is clearly brought to life in the composer's own arrangement. Sadko was an instant hit, with Borodin declaring it 'a delight'; this arrangement retains the work's original colours and moods. The Capriccio Espagnol is a Spanish-themed fantasy full of colour and exoticism, thoughtfully arranged by the composer.
