Hearing a truly great pianist perform is a joy. When two of the world’s most celebrated perform together, it’s an embarrassment of riches. Leif Ove Andsnes unites his ability to “make nanoseconds indelibly memorable” (Washington Post) with Marc-André Hamelin’s reputation for “drawing the maximum amount of color from the instrument” (Boston Globe) in a rare evening of works for two pianos amid Strathmore’s sparkling acoustics. The program will include Stravinsky’s own fiendishly difficult, four-hand scoring of The Rite of Spring, showcasing the piece’s pounding rhythms and riotous harmonies.
