Event description

Description

Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier
Canadian pianists Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier have been performing together since their student days, and have developed a remarkable sensitivity to the four-hand and two-piano literature. Their program features staples of the Russian two-piano repertoire, with a few hidden gems included. This performance celebrates the Library’s acquisition of the manuscript of the two-piano version of Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, a work for which the Library now possesses all major source materials.
