The grandes dames of the grand piano, best of friends, played Mozart’s double concerto in Geneva last Thursday.

Watch and learn.



  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    How lovely. Many thanks Norman.

    Merry Christmas every one.

  • Nijinsky says:

    Norman! I love your spelling, but isn’t watch actually watch actually, bit I mean that lurn isn’t learn!?

    And aught rhymes with taught and eight rhymes with bought, and paught isn’t a word either, so the wurm paughts

  • Rachelle Goldberg says:

    Wonderful. Thank you so much for putting this on the website. The performance is most inspiring at this time when the news is so depressing.

  • debuschubertussy says:

    I love how pianists who have probably the two most different playing styles imaginable in solo rep still sound so great as a duo

  • Uncle Sam says:

    Another link to the same concert – this one IS working!:-)

  • E says:

    Thanks so much for posting this! It’s still on youtube, if you search under the pianists’ names, or under OSR for the orchestra. Harding conducting.
