Made in Belgium (2 pianos 4 hands)
A whole program of Belgian music for 2 pianos ? That's the challenge taken by the Mahler Piano Duo! Small on the world map, Belgium is nevertheless huge in its potential of creativity and imagination, which is demonstrated by this attractive and diversified program that will amaze and surprise the public. It is made by works from past and present, from the North as well from the South of the country.
The major work of this program is the suite Gemini by Frederik Devreese, vital, rythmically strong and invigorating ballet music that depicts allegorically the different stages in the life of twins, from birth to death.
