Tamara-Anna Cislowska & Guests

Duet Vol 2 (CD)

Each week on ABC Classic’s Duet program, award-winning Australian concert pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska welcomes a star into the studio to share an hour of music and conversation at the keyboard. It’s a chance to discover what makes great performers tick: how and why they do what they do, what inspires the music, and where the artistry is born.


The highlight of each program is a duet performance, live on air: music made in the moment, capturing the intimacy of new connections between stellar artists. This album brings together some of the most passionate, profound, joyous and sometimes quirky musical moments from the show, featuring 24 guest artists including Ben Folds, Karin Schaupp, Erin Helyard, Garrick Ohlsson and William Barton, in a rich kaleidoscope of musical colours from cello to saxophone, celeste to ophicleide and trumpet to didgeridoo.
