Already in the first bars of Mozart’s Grand Sonata in F major one senses that great piano music awaits the listener on this new GENUIN release with the pianists Romana Danhel-Kolb and Oliver Kolb – intimate and, at the same time, almost symphonic sounds of Mozart and Onslow, even a world premiere recording of Johann Baptist Cramer. Following the "Slavonic Dances" so superlatively praised by the critics, the successful piano duo continues to fully explore the possibilities of the four-handed treatment of 88 keys in their second production by the Leipzig label as well. From Mozart’s classical arcs to Onslow’s romantic tempests: intellectually stimulating and poetic!
"...Piano Duo Danhel-Kolb ... makes a good case for he music, especially for the Onslow. If you don’t know the work, and this genre appeals to you, waste no more time!"
