“Audience members see, hear, and feel the connection between these two talented performers. They are in sync musically to the point where the two pianos sound as a single unit whether they play “pianissimo” or “fortissimo.”

 

“Over the course of the piece’s five movements, Venkatesh and Schaumkell perform with power and precision as they communicate without words. Their precise playing and interpretation melds as they dance through this majestic work, the music transcending into sounds of dissonance and mystery at times.”

 

“The interplay between them is intense. They become connected through rhythm and melody and play with impeccable timing through dynamic runs, echoing each other at times, as the piece trills and thrills along before ending to applause, cheers, and bows.”
