Piano duos are often perceived as a non-demanding offshoot of chamber music, even though the truth is that playing as a duet – whether for four hands or on two pianos – is incredibly challenging: the performers must come together to create a single musical entity to achieve perfect sound. The diversity and beauty of the form are explored during the 3rd International Piano Duo Festival “Duettissimo!” (23-27 April), organised by the Academy of Music in Kraków and hosted at the Academy and the Kraków Philharmonic. As well as classical works by J.S. Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johannes Brahms, Maurice Ravel and Sergei Rachmaninov, we will hear contemporary compositions by Charles Camilleri, Derek Charke and Anne Louise-Turgeon. Performers include the acclaimed Duo Turgeon and Ravel Piano Duo, lecturers and students at the Academy of Music in Kraków and winners of the International Piano Duo Competition in Białystok. The festival is accompanied by an academic session discussing music education as upbringing through music.
