About This Event

“The best piano duo in front of an audience today.” (The New York Times) Katia and Marielle Labèque are sibling pianists renowned for their ensemble of synchronicity and energy. “Whether Mozart or Stravinsky, their musical line always sounds as if it’s being woven for the very first time ... the illusion of improvisation is the genius of their performances … there is a deceptive sprezzatura that is born of throwing the preparation to the winds and hanging onto each other’s ears.” (The Times)

Program:
Igor Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring (original version for two pianos)
Bryce Dessner: El Chan
Philip Glass: Four Movements for Two Pianos
