 Goldstone and Clemmow Piano Duo


Everyone knows the orchestral version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue - but that was the last of several arrangements of which the first was for two pianos as heard here. The same applies to his wonderful "I Got Rhythm" Variations.  Also Ravel’s own duet version of Boléro, and Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, which were written for four hands before orchestration. Familiar melodies with a difference, in superb performances.


“The indefatigable husband and wife team in an enterprising and entertaining programme of two-piano/piano-duet works from two composers (and friends).”   ****

Jeremy Nicholas

Classic FM Magazine

“Typically, Goldstone and Clemmow have researched the repertoire well. There are some nice touches in the Ravel. They are at their best in the brasher works… the Cuban Overture has real élan.”

Christopher Dingle

BBC Music Magazine

“This generous collection is a great combination of the best-known works by each composer along with some less familiar works. Goldstone and Clemmow ... are simply marvelous. I have only the best to say about their performance of Bolero . I assume it is very taxing, with all of the repeated notes, and their ensemble is perfect for the full duration. Goldstone and Clemmow have consistently impressed me with their repertoire choices, musicality and precision ensemble. This release continues the tradition.”

Harrington

American Record Guide

"This disc is a delight from start to finish. With such inspired piano playing throughout... the disc is fabulous as it is but the added bonus of detailed notes by Anthony Goldstone make for a truly indispensable package. Thumbs up to the enterprising label that is Divine Art for providing us with such a barnstormer of a disc. Here’s to more from this fine stable."

Gerald Fenech 

Classical Net

“Disc further enhances [the duo’s] a considerable reputation. Very worthy performances, the programme is an attractive one for its variety…and the sound quality is deal.”

Nicholas Salwey
 

International Record Review

“The performance [of Rhapsody in Blue] is packed with poetic exuberance and well worth the cost of the CD in its own right…the other Gershwin pieces offer new facets to Gershwin. Ravel’s “Mother Goose” is a delight and played with an enormous sense of imagery. I must admit to being enchanted by Goldstone’s arrangement of the delightful “Fascination””

Denby Richards

Musical Opinion

“A most entertaining disc. Fascination indeed!”

Peter Spaull

Liverpool Daily Post

“Their influence [Gershwin and Ravel] on each other is evident in this delightful disc from the British husband-and-wife team Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow”
