Bizjak sisters: an outstanding duo
Bizjak sisters’ duo, formed by Lidija and Sanija, leads us through an extremely diverse programme. Bartok's Sonata for 2 pianos and percussion makes us think about the encounter of two continents. Through the action of its hammers, piano becomes a real percussion instrument, on equal basis with xylophones or kettledrums. Bernstein's West Side Story transcription has been made especially for this concert. As for Debussy's "En blanc et noir" and Ravel's "La Valse", they need no introduction...
