Les Boys

“Les Boys”, that give this programme its title, are the two American pianists, Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale for whom Poulenc wrote his amazing Sonate pour deux pianos in 1953. A perfect synthesis of the composer’s genius, the Sonate is here associated wiith other pieces that also balance between various aesthetic worlds. Much like Dave Brubeck’s Points on Jazz, Baptiste Trotignon’s 3 Pièces are a marvellous link between jazz and chamber music, each piece being dedicated to a classical master (John Adams, Martha Argerich and… Francis Poulenc). Splendid programme by the duo Jatekok’s “girls”.

Danses

For their first recording, the Jatekok Duo invite us for a stroll around dance through “minature” pieces in their 4 hands piano version.From Grieg’s charm to Ravel’s perfume, from Barber’s humour to Borodines’s radiance, there is not an ounce of monotony in this programme full of optimism, energy and enthusiasm.
