 Mona Bard Soloist
 Rica Bard Soloist


Elegant and style-conscious, the sisters Mona and Bard Rica under take a pas de deux, at one and at two pianos, through eighty years of French piano music. Their program includes Bizet’s masterly miniatures, Ravel’s refined, temperamental portraits of Spain, Milhaud’s comedy about a character of the Commedia dell’Arte and the stylistic versatility of Francis Poulenc, who what both fashionable to flirt with the entertainment music of his time and therefore, around 1950, to compose a substantial commentary on classicism and modernism beyond the main currents with his Sonata for Two Pianos

The Bard sisters are from Germany and new to me. Their perfect ensemble and terrific SACD recording make for a memorable introduction... I predict a great future for this duo - They seem to have it all I would compare them to the young Labeques and eagerly await Their next release."
