"When do you call a piano duo really good? Without doubt as soon as the four hands acting on the -- normally -- 88 keys become a complete unity. The GrauSchumacher Piano Duo has been residing in this Mount Olympus already for a long time..." --Badische Zeitung

Following the successful CD release with works by Mozart, Liszt and Bartók, the GrauSchumacher Piano Duo (Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher) presents new recordings on Concerti II, together with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, conducted by Martyn Brabbins. For this CD, they recorded the "Concerto Pathétique" by Franz Liszt transcribed by Stefan Heuke (2008), with an approximately hundred-bar, unmistakably contemporary cadenza. Furthermore, Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher play the Concerto for Two Pianos by Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as the "Concerto per due pianoforti soli" by Igor Stravinsky. Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher together form one of the most internationally prominent piano duos of the present day. The pianists have been performing together for 30 years, a partnership that has meanwhile been documented by numerous prizes and over 20 CDs.
