Duelling Pianos

Duelling Pianos was written in 2005 for the Brazilian piano duo of Marcelo Bratke and Marcela Ruggeri and was first performed at the Brazilian Embassy in London in May 2007.It is challenging to perform but exciting to hear.Using a vivid rhythmic idiom and an accessible tonal approach ensures that the music has a relevance and an attraction for a contemporary audience.

"The final piece in the recital, Duelling Pianos, was electrifying.The exuberance and virtuosity of the firstmovement delighted and astonished the audience.The collective gasp of approval at the opening bars was audible.The lyrical and beautifulsecond movement, interspersed with subtle hints of birdcalls, created a haunting spell of enchantment and winsome melancholy.One did not want it to end.The finale was a stock car race of speed and near misses that had the audience erupting into wild cheering at the finish line.When the two pianists took their bows , a frothing victory bottle of champagne would not have been inappropriate."Rae Welensky(The Wire)
