Robert Casadesus was the quintessential French pianist, a passionate perfectionist and superb musician. From 1934 on he formed a formidable partnership with his wife Gaby as a piano duo. The couple began appearing as a four-hand, two-piano duo in concerts across Europe and the United States. Gaby Casadesus was an elegant interpreter of Mozart’s music, respected for her assurance and sensitivity.
They are together playing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos in a magnificent performance with Dimitri Mitropoulos and the New York Philharmonic, recorded in 1955 at Carnegie Hall.
Besides, the genial Greek conductor gives a nuanced, dramatic and distinctively phrased performance of the Symphony No.39 in a recording from 1951.
