The Jussen brothers are among the most sought after piano duos of our time. Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, they have provoked the observation from conductor Michael Schønwandt that ‘it’s like driving a pair of BMWs’. They have made a number of recordings, they have had works written especially for them, and they have toured with orchestras and played recitals throughout Europe and North America. In a wonderfully varied, exquisitely curated programme, they will play works by Mozart, Schumann, Widmann, Debussy and Rachmaninov.
