Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The good sisters are the marvellous sisters Labeque, here at their superlative best in some unfamiliar but interesting music. The not-so-good sisters are the obscure sisters Sutro who doctored the score of Bruch's concerto. It is not clear to me whether the damage has ever been fully undone, so now read on. Perhaps you will understand what I have not understood.

Mendelssohn's concerto was written when he was 14 or thereabouts. He was a precocious prodigy, so we know better than to assume that this is an immature work. It follows the full-scale Mozart concerto scheme, with a long orchestral introduction - the very scheme that he later truncated in his more familiar concertos. It is thoroughly enjoyable all the way through, but it seems to me to improve as it goes along. The slow movement is lyrical and moving, but the finale is a superb piece of Mendelssohnian sparkle, and the gossamer piano figuration gives Katia and Marielle Labeque the opportunity to wow us with some truly amazing leggiero virtuosity. Those who already know their work know that they play as one, but for even one to play this kind of piano writing so brilliantly is wonder enough, let alone for two in perfect combination.

The Bruch `concerto' has had a strange history indeed. It does not follow the scheme of any normal concertos. It sounds like a suite with obbligato piano parts, and a suite is what it turns out to have been in origin, but one intended for organ with orchestra. In 1915-16 Bruch gave the score in its new arrangement to the Sutro sisters. According to Christopher Fifield's liner note they gave the work its premiere under Stokowski in Philadelphia in 1916, but then covertly started to `neuter' the score so as to bring it more comfortably within their restricted abilities.

I bought this CD because I had heard the Labeque sisters often on classic fm. The recording was clear, and I am pleased that I bought the CD which I listen to quite a lot. If you like excitement in your music, this recording will not disappoint.

These concertos with two pianos are always a great listening experience. I enjoy piano music and this is a special treat.
