Kerrytown Concert House is thrilled to finally realize this presentation which had to be cancelled back in Spring, 2020. Japanese-born pianists, Yuki and Tomoko Mack, have dazzled audiences on three different continents. After winning strong recognition as soloists, these Steinway Artists partnered to form the award-winning piano duo, The Mack Sisters. From Bach to Piazzolla, their diverse repertoire includes a broad range of four-hands piano music and orchestral works presented with their unique sense of interpretation and flawless technique. This concert will include works by de Falla (Spanish Dances No. 1&2), Piazzolla (Oblivion, Libertango), Ravel (Rhapsody Español), Barber (Souvenirs – Op. 28), and Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue).
