Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow are Britain’s top piano duo, and have an extensive discography, as well as an incredibly busy concert schedule.  On this CD they play both together and individually, to present for the first time major piano works by British composers.

ALL  TRACKS ARE WORLD PREMIÈRE RECORDINGS

“This is a very worthwhile disc in each of the four categories that make an album desirable: choice of repertoire, performance, technical quality of recording and documentary presentation.. .admirable performances… this CD is strongly recommended”

Robert Matthew-Walker
 

Musical Opinion

"Goldstone & Clemmow are a British institution in the best sense of the word... the duo’s playing is beyond reproach”

Roger Thomas

Internationa; Record Review

“Their playing of the major duo and duet repertoire always tingles with excitement and rewards with perceptive musicianship. And this disc is no exception. Whether at one or two pianos, what we hear is both virtuoso and illuminating… If you haven’t already guessed it, I was bowled over by this disc and urge you to have a similar experience by buying it”

Graham Saunders

Music Web

“a stimulating collection, splendidly presented by a first-class piano duo… Excellent recording throughout.”
 

Gramophone

"Outstanding performances from Goldstone and Clemmow: nothing catches out rhythmic imprecision like two pianos and they are right on the button every time; excellent recorded sound, too"

Martin Anderson
 

International Piano

“Another of the Divine Art’s intriguing delves into the repertoire…The excellence of the recording serves only to enhance this production. There are significant things here – not always easily prised open, it’s true, but all the more valuable for that very reason."

Jonathan Woolf

Music Web

“ An unusual disc, beautifully played, good recording and exceptionally good notes.” 

Arthur Baker

FRMS Bulletin

“The sheer energy of the [Leighton] music is finely mirrored in Anthony Goldstone’s and Caroline Clemmow’s thrillingly dynamic performance… It is good to have these works available on disc and Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow give them all sterling advocacy.”

Christopher Thomas

Music Web

Goldstone & Clemmow’s fans (and they have many, world-wide) will know to expect exemplary presentation with illuminating liner notes, and thisis no exception. Buy , and you will not have any regrets!
