      Concerto for Two Piano an Orchestra
      The Silver Garburg Piano Duo
      Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie
      Christopher Hogwood, conductor

      While concertos for two pianos and orchestra are more of a niche genre in musical life, they are weighted quite differently in the personal concert schedule of the Silver-Garburg piano duo. Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s concertos for two pianos appear more than 20 times on the tour plan for 2009 alone.
      Played in tandem, the two concertos for two pianos show two sides of Mendelssohn’s musical language. The E major concert is bright, transparent, “classical”, while the A flat major concerto embodies the magnificence, weight and drama of the romantic era. The accompanying ensemble contributes significantly to the outstanding quality of the recording: a precisely attuned chamber orchestra – the Bavarian Chamber Philharmonic – is directed by Christopher Hogwood, who with his experience of historical performance practice gives even Mendelssohn exceptional pithiness in terms of articulation and phrasing.
