Why See San Francisco Symphony - The Labeque Sisters?
Four Hands, Two Sisters
The Labeque sisters are not only bonded together by blood, but by the interweaving melodies and harmonies they play together. Arguably the most famous piano duo in the world, french siblings Katia and Marielle Labeque have honed their virtuosic skill for almost five decades since they graduated in 1968. Together with the San Fransisco Symphony, helmed by conductor Semyon Bychkov, they'll be performing Bruch's rousing Concerto for Two Pianos.
The programme begins with Taneyev's Oresteia Overture, the first Russian Opera to take inspiration from Greek mythology. This is followed by Bruch's Concerto for Two Pianos, a demanding yet hauntingly beautiful piece, the perfect choice to display the Labeque sisters' technical brilliance. Rounding off the evening will be Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 2, one of his more joyful works drawn from the Russian folk tale tradition.
Opening night: 31 May 2018
