In Your Head
New Music for Piano Four Hands


Composer: Various
Performed by: Dana Muller and Gary Steigerwalt
Label: Navona Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 12 October 2018

Piano four-hand duo, Dana Muller and Gary Steigerwalt, come together once more for In Your Head, a collection featuring the work of six composers that highlights both fresh compositional talents and earlier successful works...

The compositions showcased on In Your Head span over five decades, with each piece brought to new life by the hands of Dana Muller and Gary Steigerwalt. The album's 16 tracks (1 hr, 10 min, 37 sec) have been carefully chosen to demonstrate a wide range of playing styles and emotional feelings.

The end result sees an interesting blend of approaches not to mention demonstrating the harmony and balance that the two pianists engage in as they take us on a trip through their impressive environment.

If piano music is not to your liking, then you might want to skip this one, but everyone else will find this to be a rich and multi layered release.
