Ludmila Berlinskaya and Arthur Ancelle are two inseparable pianists, a fusion couple on stage and off. Alongside the Orchestra, they pay tribute to the pianist duo Vitya Vronsky and Victor Babin by playing the latter's Concerto No. 2, and by performing the Concerto for Two Pianos by American composer Dana Suesse for the first time in France. Extremely famous in the '30s, Suesse was nicknamed "The Girl Gershwin" for her ability to compose both symphonic music and hit songs. Leonard Bernstein, her contemporary and Gershwin's foremost advocate, completes the program with the musical West Side Story, her most famous composition, recently adapted for the screen by Steven Spielberg.
This program will be recorded.
