Anderson & Roe Piano Duo: Danse Macabre
October 31, 2016
Greg Anderson, piano / Elizabeth Joy Roe, piano
The “exhilarating” Anderson & Roe Piano Duo (Gramophone) brings its “monumental sound” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) to Music Mondays in a special Halloween program featuring both classics by Ravel and Rachmaninoff and the duo’s own clever arrangements of music by Saint-Saëns (Danse Macabre), Gluck, Piazzolla, Radiohead, and Michael Jackson (from the album Thriller). Known for performances that are both engrossing and highly “entertaining” (New York Times), when Anderson & Roe heat up, “the music dances off the page” (Gramophone).
