FMG is delighted to welcome the Parnassius Piano Duo to Chichester for the first time.

Since their foundation in 2003, the Duo have developed a wide-ranging and extensive repertoire and their engagements have included gala performances with principals from the English National Opera and a number of significant recordings.

Their two volumes of Delius’s orchestral works in arrangements for two pianos (mostly world premiere recordings, to coincide with the composer’s anniversary year) on the SOMM label were warmly received, International Record Review (June 2012) describing their playing as “sparkling and sincere” and BBC Music Magazine (July 2012) saying: “Simon Callaghan and Hiroaki Takenouchi … play with such love, panache, and exact synchronisation”.

This lecture/recital features Rachmaninov’s wonderful Suite No.2 for 2 Pianos and the Sonata for 2 Pianos by Percy Sherwood.
