Editorial Reviews

Mozart wrote only one actual sonata for two pianos. Mozart By Arrangement is the first instalment of six sparkling new Mozart two-piano sonatas. Violinist and conductor Andrew Manze once observed that the frequent concerto-like writing in Mozart's op. 2 (1781) sonatas for violin and piano might make them effective piano duets. The Australian composer Stephen Yates has taken him up on the idea, adding these delightful new works to the two-piano repertoire.

This luminous release from pianists Eva-Maria Zimmerman and Keisuke Nakagoshi, otherwise known as Zofo, is one of the few recordings that can, I think, immediately be labeled a classic. These world-class artists are at the forefront of the (admittedly small) four hands, one piano school of performance, and have dedicated themselves to playing and expanding the repertoire of works in this unique format. The duo lead off with Estonian composer Urmas Sisask’s “The Milky Way,” created with his self-described “astro-music” system. It’s a deceptively simple piece that employs hypnotic, repetitive melodic forms that evoke haunting, spectral atmospheres of varying intensity. It’s like a piece of music once heard long ago and never forgotten, its minimalist sound trajectories coalescing with maximal emotional impact. Zofo’s rendering of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” is equally revelatory. Holst originally scored this suite for piano duet before expanding it into the orchestral form, and it’s a treat to hear it the way he first imagined it. The familiar contours of the various movements emerge with fresh spatial and percussive dynamics, and the melodies—stripped to their sonic essentials—seem even more beautiful and dramatic at the hands of Nakagoshi and Zimmerman. Also included are the first two movements of George Crumb’s “Celestial Mechanics,” boasting idiosyncratic and asymmetrical note clusters—nervous, darting, percussive—and wondrous echo effects that greatly enhance the overall “cosmic” soundscape. David Lang’s “Gravity” deftly rounds out the program. Its limpid simplicity and stately progression transport the listener on a rich melodic bedrock of yearning and wonder.

So recently a friend decided to broaden my musical horizons. This is what I was given. Definitely not the type of music I listen to but really a pleasant change of pace. It's great if you want to relax but need to get things done. I'll be keeping this on my playlist!
