“Beatrice Long caused a sensation!”
“This recording is one of the most enjoyable releases I’ve heard all year – the performances are alive with missionary zeal, and it is exciting…”
“the Long sisters’ glittering collective technique, interpretive sensitivity, and the uncanny communion of souls that perhaps only siblings can share, and the result was a rare evening of music that will haunt me happily for a long time to come. “
“This is a marvelously talented duo”
Long Duo achieved the highest standard in duo piano playing. In terms of balance, clarity of layers, tone colors and thoughtfulness, this CD deserve the highest praise.
First class playing from both performers… splendid balance musically and physically. The players have everything they need for professional success-confidence, technique and musicality.
As Liszt and Rachmaninoff define lush, the Long Duo defines cohesiveness of purpose, absolute accuracy of execution and a near-spiritual transparency.
..with their barnstorming technique….the Taiwan natives allowed every piece they played to speak for itself.
This is duo pianism of a high level indeed…….
