------

Sibling piano duo Arthur and Lucas Jussen and Poulenc's colorful Concerto for Two Pianos: a unique love story.

The work, full of surprises and nostalgia, demands that the soloists play almost continuously, often without orchestral accompaniment, with several sections of a call-and-response-like dialogue that requires precise coordination between the two pianists.


"The Jussen brothers handled the dialogue so seamlessly that had there not been two pianos visibly located at the front of the stage, one could have easily believed that there was only one person creating the beautiful sounds rising through Symphony Hall." (The Tech, Sep. 26, 2019)
