Seated at a single piano, this remarkable pair of Dutch brothers performs Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece in the composer’s own four-hand transcription. The Jussens also give exquisitely-modeled performances of the standard repertoire, and will perform some of the 19th century’s greatest four-hand piano works by Schubert and Mendelssohn. Two 21st-century works written for the brothers by composers from Poland and Turkey round out this bracing program.

The Museum thanks its generous concert donors: Fitzpatrick Family Concert; James Lawrence Memorial Concert; Alford P. Rudnick Memorial Concert; Marie Louise and David Scudder Concert; Wendy Shattuck Young Artist Concert; and Willona Sinclair Memorial Concert. The piano is dedicated as the Alex d’Arbeloff Steinway. The harpsichord was generously donated by Dr. Robert Barstow in memory of Marion Huse, and its care is endowed in memory of Dr. Barstow by The Barstow Fund. The Museum is also supported in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which receives support from the State of Massachusetts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
