Bax & Chung Piano Duo
Signum Classics SIGCD-365
Brahms: Waltzes, Op 39 (17:04)
Alessio Bax & Lucille Chung, piano
Alessio Bax is joined by his partner in music and life, Lucille Chung, for a dance-themed album. The centerpiece is Stravinsky’s original four-hand version of his complete ballet Pétrouchka. Bax fell in love with a recording of the orchestral version and bought the four-hands piano sheet music when he was only eight years old, but it was many years before he found the perfect partner with whom he would perform the piece.
