This interpretation of The Planets for one piano and four hands is good, but no more. In fact, it is well executed, but it lacks a certain passion, a certain flame that burns in the orchestral version. I don't think that it is just a side effect of the transcription: I sincerely think that most pianists prefer the technique to the atmosphere in this transcription and that is just what the York Couple did on this recording. Though the interpretation isn't the best, the CD is listenable and enjoyable.
Thank you for your feedback.
