Katia & Marielle Labeque

Glass: Les Enfants Terribles (CD)

Katia and Marielle Labeque are known for the fusion and energy of their duet, pursuing a stunning career all around the world, supporting both the classical repertoire and the contemporary creation. After having worked with Olivier Messiaen, Luciano Berio, Gyorgy Ligeti, Pierre Boulez, in the last years they continued to create works written specifically for them by Louis Andriessen, Philip Glass, Bryce Dessner, Thom Yorke and soon Nico Muhly

Philip Glass's music occupies a special place in Katia and Marielle Labeque's creation since they are already dedicatees of his Double Concerto for two pianos. It's the composer himself who chose to adapt his opera Les Enfants Terribles after Jean Cocteau's novel for them, in a suite for piano duet, entrusting the adaptation to Michael Riesman, his longtime collaborator and arranger.
