Naxos Records, a leading label and distributor of Classical Music, announces a March 2018 “Brandenburg Duets” release on their Grand Piano label. Launched in 2012, Grand Piano has quickly gained a reputation for producing high quality recordings of rare keyboard gems and the new arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos was a perfect fit for its repertoire of world premiere recordings. The album will be distributed globally both physically and digitally through the Naxos distribution network, and since it is a release from a “house” label, it will be given priority by their sales organizations.
“Eleonor Bindman has done a wonderful job for many musicians with her “Brandenburg Duets” project: a transcription of Bach’s Concertos Bach for 4 hands… The result is playfully as fresh and new as authentic and convincing. Balanced in sound, perfectly attuned to each other, the version reveals new sides to these works, and the pianists equally do justice to the solos as well as the tutti with four hands, so that it would be a real pleasure for Bach. The hope is to see the transcription published by 2020 in musical form – it would be a stroke of luck for the four-hand repertoire and its lovers. A wonderful recording.”
