Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Katia and Marielle Labèque present an inspired and uplifting program of American music for two pianos that marks the duo s return to repertoire they pioneered in the 1980s. The Labèques innovative interpretation for Phillips of Gershwin s Rhapsody in Blue launched a stellar international career and was one of the first gold records in classical music. This new release from KML Records features the sisters new look at Gershwin s immortal Rhapsody coupled with Irwin Kostal s arrangement of music from Leonard Bernstein s beloved musical West Side Story. Kostal penned the original orchestration of West Side Story and his work won both an Oscar® and a GRAMMY® Award.

Review

For ensemble synchronicity and fine-tuned calibration of all things pianistic, Katia and Marielle Labèque begin where most two-piano teams leave off. --Classics Today

This album is superbly executed and entertaining. It also provided new musical insight into both Gershwin and Bernstein for me. K and M highlighted tonal and rhythmic subtleties in both works that go unheard in the orchestral versions. Particularly in West Side Story, I heard new underplays of sound enhanced rather than diminished by the two piano arrangement. All 4 artists involved showed themselves masters/mistresses of their respective crafts

Saw these sisters in concert. There aren't words to describe their talent on the piano.
Fabulous rendition of Rhapsody in Blue (originally written for the piano) and West Side Story
will have you singing along.

Fantastic! I fell in love with these young ladies when I first discovered them over a decade ago. Whether it's classical, jazz, or popular show tunes, the sisters are simply amazing.

I love this recording by the LaBecques. I read a review of it in my local newspaper and was not able to get it locally so I tried Amazon and ordered it. Very satisfied with the purchase Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue / Bernstein: West Side Story and the seller.
