Event Description:

Katia and Marielle Labèque, piano duo

Widely recognized by The New York Times as the “best piano duo in front of an audience today,” sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque are renowned for their ensemble of synchronicity and energy. Their musical ambitions started at an early age when they rose to international fame with their contemporary rendition of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (one of the first gold records in classical music) and have since developed a stunning career performing worldwide.

The duo consistently dazzles classical music audiences with their charisma and artistic inquisitiveness. Dedicated exponents of new music, but also passionate about music from Baroque to jazz, the Labèques explore music characterized by a sense of intimacy and a lightness of touch.

The Labèque Sisters’ Bass Concert Hall program will feature works by Phillip Glass and George Gershwin, along with Leonard Bernstein’s Suite from West Side Story, arranged for two pianos and percussion by the musical’s original orchestrator Irwin Kostal.

“Their performance was a knockout! Katia and Marielle Labèque, the mop-maned French sisters who have made a specialty of the repertoire for back-to-back pianos, combining familiar fare with a dazzling rarity, delivered it all with a welcome blend of theatricality and affection.” – San Francisco Chronicle
