Katia and Marielle Labèque at the Festspiele Reichenau
The duo Katia and Marielle Labèque will play on Sunday at the Festspiele Reichenau for the third season. The two sisters will play in the first half of the concert the version for two pianos of Strawinsky's „Sacre du printemps“, one of the most scandalous and at the same time most defining works of the 20th century.
In the second part of the concert Gonzalo Grau and Raphaël Seguinier will bring with their percussions more rhythm in the concert hall: they will play together with Katia and Marielle Labèque Bernstein's "West Side Story", arranged for two pianos and percussion by the musical's original orchestrator, Irwin Kostal.
Katia and Marielle Labèque will then be guests of the prestigious BBC Proms Festival on 31st July. Together with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Semyon Bychkov they will play Mozart's double concerto in E flat.
