On February 2, Marc-André Hamelin looks forward to the release of Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring & Other Works for Two Pianos Four-Hands.

Recorded with Leif Ove Andsnes for Hyperion, the new album is the first to capture on disc the collaboration that has, in live performance, been variously hailed as “a keyboard partnership of titans” (The Times of London) and “a meeting of two champions at the top of their game” (Washington Post). Click here to hear an excerpt from their performance of The Rite of Spring at Carnegie Hall earlier this year. A “mini-taster” preview video for the album is available here.
