Tal and Groethuysen Colors CD


The piano duo Tal & Groethuysen has thrilled classical music audiences for more than 30 years. They have received innumerable accolades worldwide for their recordings with Sony Classical, including five ECHO Klassik Music Awards, nine German Record Critics' Prizes, and the Cannes Classical Award.

They have recorded Debussy’s famous orchestral works Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and La Mer in four-hand versions full of evocative colour, the first arranged by the composer himself and the second in a reduction for four hands by André Caplet. The duo also chose works by Richard Strauss for this album: the “Dance of the Seven Veils” from the opera Salome and the “Waltz Sequence” from the “Rosenkavalier” in arrangements by Johannes Doebber and Victor Babin. They have also recorded the famous symphonic poem Till Eulenspiegel by Strauss arranged for four hands by Otto Singer. A fascinating recording presenting well-known romantic pieces in amazing arrangements, allowing them to be heard in a new light.


The Israeli pianist Yaara Tal and her German partner Andreas Groethuysen are the world's leading piano duo of our time.Besides an unsurpassed homogenity and spontanity in their playing, the duo displays great creativity which feature unjustly neglected musical treasures in addition to the standard repertoire.The Duo Tal & Groethuysen has released about 40 CDs on Sony Classical with piano music for two pianists, many of them are world premie`re recordings e.g. of pieces by Carl Czerny, Reinhard Febel, Theodore Gouvy, Charles Koechlin, Richard Wagner etc, which have brought them great acclaim from critics and the public alike.Their CDs have won the coveted “Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik” ten times, while the German Phono Academy has awarded its “Echo Klassik”-Prize to five of their recordings, including the complete recordings of Schubert ´s music for four hands and the complete Mozart piano duos. Other awards from outside Germany, such as the “Cannes Classical Award“,“Editor's Choice“ by Gramophone and the “Supersonic Award“ reflect their high international reputation.
