Pianists Martha Argerich and Sergei Babayan have recorded selections from Prokofiev’s music for stage and screen in magnificent two-piano transcriptions by Babayan. “Prokofiev for Two” captures for posterity the sense of mutual inspiration felt by these kindred spirits, palpable in their live performances together. The album features Babayan’s twelve-movement transcription of music from the ballet Romeo and Juliet and arrangements of Prokofiev’s incidental music for Hamlet and Eugene Onegin, film score for The Queen of Spades and opera War and Peace.
