Keyboard Ballet for Four Hands amidst Romanticism, Tango, and Jazz "Concertino" shows the fascinating expressiveness of piano music for four hands: Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Johannes Brahms stand next to the tangos by Astor Piazzolla and the modern jazz soundscapes of the contemporary composer Alexander Rosenblatt. The Düsseldorf-based virtuosos Marina Kheifets and Anna Yarovaya thus present their own unmistakable approach to the repertoire between romanticism, tango and jazz: their playing is a ballet for four hands in which two different personalities complement each other perfectly – always in a playful struggle for a conclusive interpretation. A special feature of this recording is the recording room. The sound engineer and acoustics specialist Christian Zimmerli optimized it especially for the special sound characteristics of pianos.
