Incredible colours, textures and rhythms in music for two pianos by Debussy, Ravel and Philip Glass, performed by the dynamic sister duo.

Katia and Marielle Labèque are renowned for their charismatic performances of music for two pianos, and are unparalelled in their interpretations of music in the French tradition. They revel in the beauty of Debussy's piano miniatures evoking the ancient world, and the glittering textures of Ravel's score. They finish with a dramatic and rhythmic tour de force in pieces from Philip Glass's opera Les Enfants Terribles, based on Jean Cocteau's novel and Jean-Pierre Melville's film.
