Claudio Abbado has termed Aglika Genova and Liuben Dimitrov “THE piano duo of the young generation”, and the two have indeed come to be regarded as one of today’s most sought-after piano duos worldwide. On their latest CD they interpret suites by Anton Arensky.
This refreshingly modern interpretation of the suites presents them in all their fascinating sophistication and incredible transparency and reveals the spirited emotionality, sincerity, and bold virtuosity of the effective and dazzling piano part in their best light.
