The Kipnis/Kushner Duo - Piano Four Hands

PACD 96030 Reviews of Kipnis / Kushner - Piano Four Hands American Record Guide Review

The Kipnis / Kushner piano duo was formed in 1995 and made its debut at a meeting of The Bohemians, a New York music club. Since then it has performed wisely and has appeared over many radio stations. These selections were compiled from several sources - including two radio broadcasts that were not intended to be released commercially and are therefore unedited. The Gershwin was an encore at a concert in California. Edited or not, the playing could hardly be better. Kipnes and Kushner are thouroughly immersed in the music, but they obviously love working together.
;;;;;All of the playing is on the highest level: the highest of the highest, perhaps, is Brhams´s Liebeslieder waltzes. They are lovely, lilting andsound like they came straight from the heart.

BEVERSLUIS American Record Guide September / October 2000

PACD 96030 Reviews of Kipnis / Kushner - Piano Four Hands After distinguished recording careers as a harpsichordist and fortepianist, Igor Kipnis adds to his laurels, as a duo-pianinst with Karen Kushner. Their first disc, devoted to works for four hands on a single piano, firmly establishes the team as one of the best (PACD 96030).
Brahms´s Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 52a and Shubert´s Divertissment à l´Hongoise, Op. 54 are played with a sensitive musicianship. Ravel´s Mother Goose recieves a brillian, colorful reading, enhanced by inclusion of Luscien Garban´s 1919 transcription of the opening movements of the orchestral ballet Ravel made of the score. The remainder of the disc is devoted to delightful miniatures: the deliciously irreverent quadrille Faur´ and Messager made of themes from Wagner´s "Ring", Calimerio Soares´s Batucata and Gershwin´s Rialto Ripples. Fine sound.
