The year 1972 saw the death of Victor Babin, one half of the legendary Vronsky and Babin, arguably the most brilliant piano duo of the 20th century and a worldwide sensation for over three decades. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Babin’s death, Katerina Moskaleva and Alexey Pudinov, themselves two musical forces of nature, come together as Two4Piano, a duo perfectly suited for breathing new life into Victor Babin’s appealing and colorful repertoire. Including newly rediscovered scores, this special program takes us from Rachmaninoff’s unmistakably Romantic style via Borodin’s rousing folkloric rhythms and Tchaikovsky’s balletic waltzes to Babin’s own remarkable evocations of a bygone era.
