Midwest Record

We like this duo since they have a knack for making two instruments fill the room with sound. Paying tribute to a popular performer that had all sort of composing royalty writing for him, he was at his best before recording had begun and except for the efforts of duos like this, he might be needlessly forgotten. A three cd set divided by themes, this set of mostly world premiere recordings is a real treat for chamber music fans. With each disc packed to the gills with music, there’s plenty here that’s loaded with deceptively simple chops and charm. A tasty collection from stem to stern.
