21-year-old identical twins Rachel and Vanessa Fuidge have all that it takes to become one of our very best piano duos - skill and personality. In 2005, as the tender age of 17, they made a CD for Dunelm which was well received though not distributed internationally; we have taken the best of the tracks from that album and added three major works recorded in the summer of 2009 to produce this new CD. The music was recorded in ’single takes’ as for a live performance - no recourse to thousands of edits... and the programme which includes several jazz-inspired pieces is an absolute joy. A disc to brighten any day or mood!
 

"Hey, did you know the next Labeque Sisters are coming out of England?”  "This finds them covering some well trod Labeque ground and covering it quite well. Good taste that tastes good, like what’s going on here.  A striking new sound that bodes well for keyboards of the future.”

Chris Spector
 

Mid West Record

“Their playing has accomplishment, enterprise and a charming freshness.. They are excellent musicians and have a wide taste in repertoire. The recording... is very clear and natural and I have the greatest pleasure in recommending this disc as an introduction to the wide range, both familiar and less familiar, of the piano duet repertoire.”

Philip L. Scowcroft

“The twins have an excellent technique and a lively musicality that enables then to give superb interpretations. They are so well in control that the whole exercise sounds fun, and this communicates itself to the listener, resulting in a wonderfully enjoyable experience. Throughout, Rachel and Vanessa, helped by a superb recording, bring out the clarity of the many varied textures really well. An outstanding CD, full of joy! Very highly recommended.”
