Grimaud - Gabetta - Duo: Schumann, Debussy, Shostakovich, Brahms on Limited Edition 180g 2LP + Download

Two of today's most passionate and inspirational artists join forces in the recital program that brought audiences to their feet at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad in Summer 2011. The palpable chemistry between French pianist Hélène Grimaud and Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta left critics and audiences nothing short of euphoric.

With sonatas by Brahms, Debussy and Shostakovich set alongside Schumann's dream-intoxicated Fantasiestückek, Op. 73, this first ever duo recording captures the unique creative energy generated by this dynamic partnership between two of classical music's most intriguing, engaging and alluring artists.

Based on a rare understanding on many levels - musical, emotional and personal, this fresh and strong encounter does not even raise the question of who accompanies whom. Finding new musical insights in familiar work, Grimaud and Gabetta bring these masterpieces to potent and thought-provoking heights.

Musicians:

Schumann / Debussy / Shostakovich / Brahms (composer)
