First here is the good news for all Evgeni Koroliov fans: Koroliov also plays in a piano duet, with his wife Ljupka Hadzigeorgieva; and not just since yesterday. He has been doing so for the last thirty (!) years. When TACET released the first solo recording by Evgeni Koroliov in 1990 (TACET 13 the Art of Fugue), a disc which composer Gyrgy Ligeti was later to comment on, saying that it was the only one he would like to have with him on a desert island - many people wondered why they had not heard about this pianist before. In a strange way a similar thing has happened with the Koroliov piano duo. Here, yet again - with the exception of a special recording with a quite unusual repertoire - TACET is releasing the first recording by the Koroliov Duo. The fact that these two pianists are going public thirty years after beginning their joint career may seem puzzling, but says a lot about the seriousness with which they have approached these great works by Franz Schubert.
