Described as “a symphony orchestra and solo stars all rolled into four hands and one mind (Milwaukee Sentinel),” the Paratore Brothers are America’s reigning duo-piano team. In 2012, the pianists celebrated their 40th anniversary as an unsurpassed duo. Their powerhouse program for two pianos features such ground-breaking compositions as Ravel’s Rapsodie Espagnole and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, both in the composers’ original versions.
