DUO LECHNER TIEMPO : La Belle Epoque (Hybrid SACD + Bonus PAL DVD)

     

This new release from avanticlassic features siblings Karin Lechner and Sergio Tiempo in an extraordinary recital of celebrated French Music for piano duo or two pianos.

Karin and Sergio are two of the best soloists of their generation. Their acclaimed soloist careers did not prevent them from keeping a place for piano duo. It is always a musical highlight when both brother and sister join forces to offer us a truly virtuosic but also highly inspired moment of music.

Their first album for avanticlassic focuses on one of the most interesting musical periods in France history: La Belle Époque. With Scaramouche from Darius Milhaud, Daphnis and Chloé by Maurice Ravel, Dolly by Gabriel Fauré, two Nocturnes from Debussy and a haunting la Valse from Maurice Ravel, they chose an inspired program displaying the intimacy, the magic, but also the fascinating musical concepts arising from this culturally rich era.

This edition also includes an exclusive DVD featuring Insights of a Duo, directed by Joachim Thôme (www.lesproductionsduverger.be) plus Night Recordings, a documentary on Karin Lechner and Sergio Tiempo.
