I had the pleasure of attending a two-piano recital last night, with performers Mary Chung and Amanda Virelles, both of whom are doctoral candidates at my school, for piano performance. The purpose of the recital was to show off a new Steinway bought for the Gulf Coast campus of my school, and they also used the Steinway from Hattiesburg that was just purchased a couple of years ago. So, two nice, new Steinways.
The program was:
Mozart Sonata in C major K 545, arranged for two pianos by Grieg
Rachmaninoff Suite No. 2 Op. 17
"Music from Latin America":
Libertango, by A. Piazzola
Los muñecos, by I. Cervantes
Introduccion y Danza, by J.F. Garcia
Malagueña, by E. Lecouna
The Mozart was nice but not really all that great...it's a well-known sonata (the tweety bird sonata!), and all Grieg did was add some harmony and embellishment to it. The Rachmaninoff was great - I especially love the last movement, the Tarantella. The second and third Latin pieces I seem to remember being sort of repetitive, but I really liked the Libertango and the Malagueña.
