With György Kurtág (born 1926); György Ligeti (1923-2006) and Péter Eötvös (born 1944); Hungary has produced three of the most important and internationally successful composers of the post-war era. This recording brings together piano works by Kurtág and Ligeti. It shows that the four-hand piano character piece also has musical expressiveness and genre-technical justification in contemporary musical art. Ani and Nia Sulkhanishvili were born as twins in Tbilisi / Georgia in 1988. At the age of 6 they received their first piano lessons from Svetlana Arakelova. The highlight of their career so far was the 2nd prize at the "64th ARD International Music Competition" in Munich in 2015. This was the start of an international career with performances in Europe; America and China. The piano duo has mastered a large repertoire spanning the epochs from classical to modern.
