Almost all good Romantic-era composers knew how to have fun at the piano, all the more so with a friend. Schumann and Brahms wrote some of their most unbuttoned music in this genre, and their example was followed by Heinrich von Herzogenberg (1843-1900). From a generation after Brahms, he venerated the older man, and having maintained a relationship - somewhat strained on Brahms's part - since their first meeting, he came in 1868 to marry Elisabeth von Stockhausen, who herself had been a pupil and close friend of Brahms, who would often write them letters together (and then more private ones to Elisabeth). Von Herzogenberg left grand themes and forms to his many works in other genres such as quartet and oratorio. There are five variation sets here - one on a theme by Brahms, the others of his own invention - and several collections of dances, equally cheerful and often whimsical in disposition: music to be enjoyed in the playing as much as the listening. There are two collections of Allotria - from the Greek, meaning strange or foreign things - each containing three pieces, and the second set here receives it's first recording. Von Herzogenberg's handling of harmony is at it's most ingenious here, and his northern-accented melodies are especially original. The sisters Nadia and Angela Tirino have played together since childhood, and they share that intimate understanding, musical instinct and equality of partnership common to first-class sibling piano-duets. Having both studied at the conservatoire in Florence, they live and work there, teaching and performing, but also joining the jury of distinguished piano competitions around the world. This von Herzogenberg release is their first internationally available album.
