This Warner Classics debut makes clear that they show great imagination in their programming: Messiaen's mystical and epic Visions de l'Amen, composed during World War II, appears alongside John Adams' boisterous and percussive Hallelujah Junction, inspired by a truckstop on the border of Nevada and California. The CD is completed with JS Bach's serenely moving 'Gotttes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit, BWV106' (Sonatina from 'Actus tragicus') in an arrangement by the contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag.
"They have to be heard to be believed...I m ready to put them on a level with some of the greatest piano duos of our time: Vronsky and Babin, Luboschutz and Nemenoff, or Argerich and Freire. --The Washington Post

On Hallelujah Junction, the Naughton sisters worked directly with the composer (search for the video documentary online), and you can be sure that no other recording fulfills that composer’s own intention as completely as this one.
The Bach is a perfect interlude in which to recover emotionally from the fervency of the Messiaen to the exuberance of the Adams.
