Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the American piano duo Claire Aebersold and Ralph Neiweem, this disc represents a selection of some of their personal favorite original and transcribed works for piano four hands. The cd features the world-premiere recording of the Great Movements Sonata for Four Hands; a welcome virtuoso addition to the neglected contemporary repertoire for piano duet by New York composer Patrick Byers, along with original composer transcriptions of works by Mozart, Ravel, Liszt and Respighi. Currently celebrating twenty-five years as a performing ensemble, Claire Aebersold and Ralph Neiweem are marking the occasion with an international tour which will include New York, Chicago, Rome and Vienna.

Claire Aebersold is a graduate of the New England Conservatory, and Ralph Neiweem of the Juilliard School. Husband and wife, they are currently duo-inresidence at the Music Institute of Chicago, where they founded the NEA award-winning Chicago Duo-Piano Festival.
