Latest Acclaim

It was Beethoven, Shostakovich, Chopin and Brown that the audience had come to hear, and these performances were serious and thoughtful. The two play with their antennae tuned to each other. Where needed, Brown shaped piano phrases like a bowed instrument, easily mirrored by matching cello lines, while Canellakis found ways to delineate legato passages with a pianistic sort of voice-leading.
