nge Spinette and Jan Michiels have been playing piano duets since 1988 and have gradually built up a repertoire ranging from Mozart’s sonatas to the latest contemporary works: from four-handed performances on the Tangentenflügel to two electronically transformed pianos in Stockhausen’s Mantra. Between those two extremes there are so many gems for a ‘miniature orchestra’ of four hands on one or two keyboards. György and Márta Kurtág were very delighted by their playing during a workshop in the Orpheusinstituut (Ghent). They have recorded works by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Debussy, Bartók (the Sonata for two pianos and percussion with Gert François and Bart Quartier), Goeyvaerts and Kurtág. A piano duo as a bridge between very divergent styles.
