Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Noted piano duettists Elizabeth Buccheri and Richard Boldrey offer a fascinating collection of piano duet music by composers spanning the 19th century including two sonatas by Georges Onslow (1784–1853), a Suite by Balakirev, and shorter works by Reger, Grieg, Liszt, and Wagner(!). These brilliant performances, which previously appeared on two separate LPs, were digitally remastered from the original reel-to-reel tapes from 1978 and 1985 for optimal sound quality.

"This record is a winner.... Boldrey and Buccheri don’t just play the notes. They enjoy the music, and convey that enjoyment tangibly.... This is one of those sleepers... every time you feel like some unalloyed enjoyment, you’ll consider pulling this disc down and playing it."

— Fanfare on the original LP issue of Romantic Music for Piano Four-Hands (Vol. 1)
