You would never believe that two accordeons produce such a marvelous version of Petrouchka from Strawinsky. I knew the orchestra-version all my life, I knew the arrangement for 5 piano's, and now this. If you like Strawinsky and Mussorgsky as much as I do, this CD is a great item to have!

A singular achievement, a unique pleasure 27 April 2002
By Steven Strauss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These two young Europeans have done an inspired and remarkably attentive job of translating the orchestral music of Stravinsky's Russian folk ballet "Petrushka" for their two great button accordions. The score itself seems at times to have been inspired by the quaint, wheezy dance music often played on the accordion in Old Russia, making it a particularly apt choice for this unusual duo. I have saved for last the most compelling reason to buy this disc: the level of technical skill and the range of expression on display will leave speechless any music lover in your circle who dismisses the accordion as a mistake of creation. Music of such interpretive richness and rigorousness cannot be dismissed. (I may add, if you are the sort of person who likes to dance to the music, these two will not let you down.)
The disc is rounded out by an aggressive, somewhat hurried reading of Stravinsky's usually melancholy "Tango," and a meritorous adaptation of Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition," which comes off like a reasonable compromise between the original keyboard work and the orchestrated version which made its fame. The playing throughout is nearly faultless.

So you thought accordians were for polkas 4 Jan 2007
By Best Ears in Town - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is one of the most remarkable "sleepers" to come along for some time. The first time I heard the recording of these two guys doing Stravinsky's Petroushka I was absolutely blown away. Everything seems to be there...everything Stravinsky wanted us to hear, with uncanny musicianship these two performers do it all. Pix at an Exhibition is interesting in its own special way, but the real stand out, drop dead performance is the Stravinsky. I take back every snide joke I ever made about playing "Blackbird Gavotte" with one hand behind your belt on "the squeeze box". These guys are MASTERS and IF you can get ahold of a copy, new or used, I strongly urge you to do so
