Featured works: W.A. Mozart: Concerto for two pianos & orchestra. Franz Liszt: Concerto Pathetique. Bela Bartok: Concerto for two pianos, percussion and orchestra. Performed by: Grauschumacher Piano Duo, Franz Schindlbeck & Jan Schlichte, percussion, DSO Berlin, Ruben Gazarian, conductor. "Today, the GrauSchumacher Piano Duo is one of the most prolific piano duos worldwide, and a regular guest at many important festivals and concert halls, including the Schwetzinger Festspiele, Berliner Festspiele, Ultraschall, and Alte Oper Frankfurt. The duo frequently works together with such renowned conductors as Heinz Holliger, Bertrand di Billy, Georges Pretre and Zubin Mehta. An integral aspect of their programmatic conception is the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity. For this reason, Andreas Grau and Gotz Schumacher maintain an active dialogue with contemporary composers such as Peter Eotvos, Wolfgang Rihm or Karlheinz Stockhausen, who worked in close collaboration with the duo throughout the development of his monumental MANTRA for two pianists."
