Katia & Marielle Labèque perform German premiere in Düsseldorf
On 28, 30 and 31 October 2022, the sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque were repeat guests of the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf.
Under the direction of Adrien Perruchon, they performed the German premiere of the piece "In Certain Circles" by Nico Muhly. Composed for the sisters, it was commissioned by the Orchestre de Paris, the New York Philharmonic, the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.
"The French women - wide awake, emotional, meticulous without pedantry. [...] The Labèque sisters let cascades of sound rush up, the orchestra, under the direction of the Frenchman Adrien Perruchon, rises to rhythmic excesses." (Rheinische Post, 31/10/2022, Anke Demirsoy)
"Only afterwards (Friday at least) are there jeers and a hurricane of bravos for the pianists." (NRZ Online, 30.10.2022, Michael-Georg Müller)
