The real life marriage of two great concert pianists, Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung, has led to one of the leading piano duos of their generation. To cite the UK magazine Music and Arts, “Theirs is a marriage of wondrous colours and dextrous aplomb, subtly balanced to make a musical performance sound as one.” Stavinsky’s Pétrouchka was originally arranged for four-hands by the composer as a rehearsal score for the Ballet Russes production of the same name, but in this stripped-down it brings Stravinsky’s melodic, rhythmic and harmonic inventiveness to the fore.  Brahms’s 16 Waltzes Op.39 are an enchanting collection of Romantic miniatures that simultaneously nod to the musical lineage of the composer’s home in Vienna whilst asserting his own flair and individuality. The final four tangos by Piazzolla are a full of Argentine flair and vigour, and were arranged especially for this recording by Bax & Chung.

"...This is a very special recording and one that belongs in every music lover’s collection."

James Harrington - American Record Guide - March/April 2014

 "Pardon the cliché, but here’s a husband-and-wife piano duo who make beautiful music together... Superb annotation and engineering make the Bax/Chung duo debut CD all the more auspicious."

Jed Distler - Gramophone magazine - April 2014

 "This varied and enjoyable disc from married duo Bax and Chung is notable mainly for Stravinsky’s own four-hand transcription of Petrushka, heard here in a remarkably affectionate performance... The set of four Piazzolla Tangos offer a fun and stylish way to close the recital."

Colin Clarke - International Piano magazine - March/April 2014

"... They [Bax & Chung] share a relish of a certain brilliant clarity in their playing. In this scintillating recital, it’s hard to find even a fleeting moment where ensemble is less than meticulous. They realise Petrushka’s wondrous array of colours with consummate assurance, and enjoy equally the inventve variety in 16 Waltzes, while their own arrangements of four tangos unleash their virtuosity."

Stephen Pettitt - The Times - Culture magazine - 28 November 2013
