About

Anni and Lola Totsiou each have their own intense concert activity, but together they have signed, for decades, many wonderful interpretations of works for two pianos. For this year's appearance at Megaro, they chose to take the audience on a tour of important symphonic works of the early 20th century, seen of course through the prism of transcriptions for two pianos by their own composers.


In the concert program, however, the first pan-Hellenic performance of the version for two pianos of the "Gogol" Suite by Alfred Schnittke, undoubtedly the greatest Russian composer in the second half of the 20th century after Shostakovich, stands out. A caustic, ironic, sometimes macabre humor dominates almost throughout the Suite, so fitting for the equally caustic, sardonic pen of the Russian author who exercised (like Schnitke's music in so many cases) a well-founded social criticism.

Program:
Claude Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune
(transcription for two pianos by the composer)
Gustav Holst: Poseidon, the mystic from the Suite "The Planets", work 32
(transcription for two pianos by the composer)
Mautice Ravel: Spanish Rhapsody (version for two pianos by the composer)
Alfred Schnittke: Gogol Suite (1980) (transcription for two pianos: Valery Borovikov), first pan-Hellenic performance
