About the album
In a unique collaboration, Kirill Gerstein teams up with his mentor and inspiration, the great Hungarian pianist Ferenc Rados, for an album of four-hand duets by Mozart. An icon for generations of musicians but one who has mostly avoided making recordings, this fascinating disc reveals Rados’s distinctively characterful art at its captivating best and finds both partners in a stimulating musical conversation.
For the liner notes of the album, music writer Joseph Horowitz has contributed an article and interview with Kirill Gerstein. Cellist Steven Isserlis provides a touching tribute filled with personal anecdotes and musical observations about Ferenc Rados. Numerous photos by Kaupo Kikkas round out the extensive booklet.
