Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and the French siblings Katia and Marielle Labèque in one evening. That’s called Classic, with a capital C. Ever since the late 70s, the piano sisters Labèque have been known as ‘the best piano duo in the world’, according to The New York Times. Especially live, they are unequalled. Now, the duo are welcomed as artists in residence at the Eindhoven Muziekgebouw. The South Netherlands Philharmonic likes nothing better than to share in their enthusiasm, in playing Mozart’s Second Concerto for Two Pianos with these two dynamic sisters. The icing on the cake is Dessner’s accessible Double Concerto—Dessner who himself is the successful, erstwhile composer in residence of the Eindhoven Muziekgebouw. Conductor Karel Deseure leads the passionate piano energy and tops it off with Beethoven’s most famous symphony, the Fifth.
