Two leading pianists – one British, one American – tackle rare music in two-piano format. Saint-Saëns’ 1874 variations take as their theme the trio of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata in E flat, Op. 31 No. 3, while Gershwin’s masterpiece is heard in his own two-piano version.

  • Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
      • Tannhäuser
        • Overture (arr. Léon Roques)
  • Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921)
        • Variations on a Theme of Beethoven Op. 35
  • George Gershwin (1898-1937)
        • An American in Paris
