One Piano, Four Hands
In 19th-century Europe, long before LPs, CDs or mp3s, there were only two ways to listen to the latest Beethoven symphony: either you were lucky enough to hear it performed at the local concert hall, or you played it at home yourself. Not with a full orchestra of course, but in a piano transcription. And to really mimic the range of an orchestra, amateurs played ‘four-handed’ with two pianists sitting side-by-side. Often defying the laws of nature and always very humorous, Susan Ellinger and Adam Cohen bring their signature playfulness to the piano with an acrobatic performance of four hands at one keyboard. Part of the 2018 Dave and Mary Wood Classical Concert Series.
