Rockin' Rudy's

This recording celebrates a magnificent era in four hand music. After the historic contributions of Mozart, Schubert, and Brahms, the duet mantle was passed to French composers. Breaking free from more classical duet settings, these artists produced four hand masterpieces that reflected the remarkable musical innovations of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Nuanced colors and a sophisticated handling of timbre, form, and harmony are the hallmarks of this imaginative and evocative time.
