Dear friends, we are happy to announce that our Liszt / Saint-Saëns recording has been among Gramophone's Editor's Choice in March !
"I can only say I was bowled over by the playing of this Franco-Russian husband-and-wife duo, astonished to the extent that any initial scepticism, any notion of this being a mere curiosity, is utterly confounded. Their performance of this music is everything and more that I had hoped for (...) this will be among my discs of the year" says Jeremy Nicholas
In France, this recording continued to receive praise from the specialized press :
- 5 Diapasons from eponym magazine : "Thanks to the talent of the performers, these enrichments (...) offer a real rediscovery of the masterpiece"
- "Must" from concertonet.com : "This exceptional disc will enrich the history of recording. This interpretation (...) already sounds like an historical version." writesChristian Lorandin
- In Le Monde, Pierre Gervasoni writes :"The B minor Sonata (transcribed by Saint-Saëns) and her twin sister, After a reading of the Dante (transcribed by Arthur Ancelle), cultivate duality in a supernatural dimension (transcendental technique and fairy expression)"
Lately, we performed mostly individually, with the exception of a four-hands concert in Paris.
The occasion for Arthur to give his first recital in Moscow Conservatory, an Ibert, Dutilleux, Chopin program.
Following the success of the concerts in Russia, Arthur will perform again next season in Chernogolovka and Moscow Conservatory
Over the next months, we will be performing solo concerts, 2 pianos, 4 hands, chamber music, we will record individual programs for our dear Melodiya, Ludmila's "Quintet+" concert in Moscow will be released worldwide, and we are preparing a very ambitious project as a Piano Duet for 2018.
The calendar will soon be updated as concert propositions are piling up !
