Tanglewood Presents – Recitals from the World Stage: Lucas and Arthur Jussen
July 15 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$8
Recorded at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam
Hosted by Karen Allen
The Dutch piano duo of brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen perform a recital of music for piano four-hands from the stage of Amsterdam’s wonderful Concertgebouw.
Four-hand keyboard music epitomizes at-home music-making with family and friends, and all of these pieces stem from that tradition. Mozart spent his childhood performing piano four-hands music with his sister Nännerl; his D major sonata, written when he was 16, reflects this intimacy. Schubert’s warmly passionate Fantasy in F minor is a late work dedicated to one of his own piano students, and Ravel wrote his delightful Mother Goose for the precocious children of a friend. The Polish composer Hanna Kulenty wrote VAN… in 2014 for the Jussen brothers themselves.
