Le Prophète: music for four hands. TTK0005 Stephanie McCallum and Erin Helyard
Recorded in Frits Janmaat's Maison Erard in Amsterdam, this disc presents music for piano four hands of striking textural and musical originality on historic Erard pianos (1839, 1847 and 1898) each dating from within a few years of the date of composition of the work recorded on it. The pianos have been restored to superb playing condition by one of the world's leading authorities on Erard pianos, Frits Janmaat and recorded in super-audio CD format by Brendon Heinst on the innovative audiophile label trptk. The partnership of outstanding performers, expert restorer and cutting-edge sound allows listeners to hear the sounds from the composers' day as never before.
