Locations can be magical in many ways - musically they can be exotic, inspired by a holiday taken by the composer, expressions of a culture or of nature; here, special places range from England (Britten’s Aldeburgh) to Siberia to North Africa. These evocative symphonic poems for piano duet all express some fascination with locale which have excited a composer and brought about these exquisite and Romantic pieces.

 "... this is a disc to hear very much as a recital. There are passages of brilliance to be savoured at every turn ..."

Mark Tanner - International Record Review - February 2013

 


"I am forever praising CDs from Divine Art that feature the dual piano team of Caroline Clemmow and Anthony Goldstone, who specialize in piano arrangements of popular classics. Their latest is titles "magical Places, evocative Symphonic Poems for Piano Duet," offering up musical portraits of several places in Europe and Russia... I advise that my readers give this Divine Art disc a try."

Frank Behrens - Art Times Journal - October 2012


"Another disc of the very highest quality from the brilliant Piano Duet team of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow. I repeat what I have written previously; their discs represent an ideal; superb and often rare music, played with great technical accomplishment and musical insight. They’re very well recorded and presented with liner-notes as informative as they are entertaining... All in all another fascinating exploration of the rich repertoire of music for piano duet; a superb anthology presented with scholarly flair and musical insight."

Nick Barnard - MusicWeb-International.com - 8 October 2012


“During this ethnographic concert the harmonies, rhythms, colors and beguiling associations are unmistakably Russian, Swedish, French/Mediterranean and English. Throughout their hour and ten minute musical travelogue, Goldstone and Clemmow’s ebullience, respect for these composers and technical flair is inescapable."

Howard Smith - Music and Vision.com


‘Another revelatory recording for Divine Art ... a brilliant disc.”

Michael Tumelty - The Herald (Scotland)
 


“These two pianists shape and mold the piano transcriptions so well as to deliver interpretations that are just as effective [as the orchestral originals]. Not even a smidgen of the essence of these pieces is lost in the transcriptions, mostly due to the emotive edge these two musicians bring to the table.”

Jean-Yves Duperron - Classical Music Sentinel - September 2012
