“METAMORFOSI”
SCHUMANN: Andante and Variations op. 46 for two pianos
BRAHMS: Variations su un tema di Haydn op. 56b for two pianos
GRIEG: Old Norwegian Tune with variations, op. 51 for two pianos
FELLEGARA: Metamorphosis (from a fragment by Bach) for piano four hands

… The piano duo confirms its moment of grace and realizes another valuable recording, which proposes the four compositions not by chance, but because they share a surprising “elective affinity”. … The keyboards of the Moneta-Rota duo “mutate”, as if by magic, from black and white in all colors of the rainbow, warm and brilliant, soft and delicate: the magic of metamorphosis.
