Format: DVD
Güher and Süher Pekinel bring a combination of musical elegance, physical glamor and slight exoticism arising from their origins in Turkey. They have been recording artists for a couple of decades but this is, as far as I know, their first DVD. It is cobbled together from live performances in London, Lucerne and Zurich. The two-piano repertoire is not large and all the works featured here are staples of two-piano concerts: Mozart's and Poulenc's Two Piano Concertos, the Brahms Two Piano Sonata, the Lutoslawski Paganini Variations and a single movement from Milhaud's Scaramouche Suite. All the performances are impeccable and engaging.

The performance of the Mozart Concerto, with Sir Colin Davis leading the English Chamber Orchestra, is as marvelous as any I've ever heard. The Pekinels and the ECO are in perfect harmony. The Poulenc Concerto is marked by exceedingly fast tempi in the outer movements but are done with exceeding élan which, of course, they require. The middle movement is sultry and exotic.

The Paganini Variations of Lutoslawski are given a brilliant performance. The Brahms Two Piano Sonata, which is the precursor to its final form as Brahms's Piano Quintet, has never been my cup of tea largely because I much prefer the Piano Quintet version. But the Pekinels bring a studied earnestness to it that makes a good case for it.

The Pekinel twins use an unusual stage set-up. Their pianos are not nested as in most two-piano concerts with orchestra, nor are they side-by-side as in most two-piano recitals. They both face the same direction but are staggered so that neither pianist can see the other's face or hands. This arrangement is, as far as I know, unique to the Pekinels and they describe their preference for it in the booklet notes.
