Güher and Süher Pekinel is the exceptional Turkish twin piano duo that has gained international success over the past 40 years. Starting as prodigies in their early childhood, they had their first public performance at the age of six. Their career brought them from Turkey over to France, Germany, Japan, the US, Great Britain and many more.
Güher and Süher Pekinel are known for playing the piano backto-back, only relying on sound. Their ability is often described as a telepathic gift which offers the listener a perfectly balanced sound. This internationally often adored style of piano playing gives each performance an engrossed tension and makes it a unique musical experience.
This DVD comprises the remarkable live concerts from London, Lucerne and Zurich which are conducted by the brilliant Sir Colin Davis and famous Chinese conductor Muhai Tang. Both belong to the greatest maestri of our time and bring these Pekinel concerts to a musical highlight.

“Turkish identical twins who never glance at each other, yet play as though governed by a single brain. Their Mozart is serene, their Milhaud unfettered, their Brahms majestic.”
