Born in 1993 & 1996 respectively, Dutch concert pianist brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen have quickly established international careers, both together as a sought after sibling duo and individually as solo artists. They both achieved early recognition as piano prodigies aged eight – Lucas as finalist of the Rotterdam Piano Festival and Arthur as Holland’s ‘Young Musical Talent of the Year.’ Subsequently studying in Portugal and Brazil, master pianist Maria João Pires guided the early development of these precocious talents into unusually mature teenaged artists, and they have since delighted audiences and critics the world over.
De Volkskrant newspaper has reported: “Under their hands, the two pianos form one flowing instrument” – whilst De Telegraaf summed the pair up thus: “Two souls, one mind.” Conductor Michael Schønwandt remarked that directing them was “… like driving a pair of BMWs.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Concerto No. 10 for two pianos in E-flat major was composed at the very end of the 1780s, most probably with his elder sister ‘Nannerl’ in mind as joint soloist. Therefore an obvious choice of repertoire for the Jussen brothers, and in fact they recorded this work for their fourth Deutsche Grammophon CD release in 2015, partnered with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
German-Dutch conductor Arjan Tien and the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra will set the atmosphere for this special concerto performance with the suitably exhilarating overture to The Marriage of Figaro, returning after the interval for one of Romantic music’s greatest achievements and landmarks – the monumental Symphony No. 1 in C minor Opus 68 by Johannes Brahms.
