We held a concert in Balatonfüred, Hungary, on 5 August 2016 as part of the Klassz a pArton series of events. Máté Csabai wrote about our concert for the Fidelio Magazine. Here is an excerpt from his text:
“On 5 August I attended the piano four hands concert of Enikő Görög and Noémi Görög, both born in Subotica. The concert could not be held in open air because of the coming storm. (By the way, the sister duo had already performed the same programme in Gyulakeszi and Balatonalmádi a few days earlier.)
The Görög sisters are known for their exuberant energy and intensive, compassionate play, and their selection of pieces to be performed anything but boring. The pastel-like, lingering chords of Samuel Barber’s Souvenirs perfectly harmonized with the slightly hazy, hot and humid weather.
The Görög sisters have been playing together since the beginning of their career, thus the unison between them is perfect. At times their play is wild and loud, while at other times it is very tenderly, but their play is never superficial. They did not stop short of playing Ravel’s exceptionally complex and demanding piece, the La Valse at the end of their programme.
There is a tiny hall behind the Hospital for Cardiology, where a few dozens enthusiastic music fans huddled together, found a safe haven from the rain and listened to the Görög sisters, who ”tore the roof off the hall” with Saint-Saens’ The Dance of Death and Ravel’s ecstatic waltz. If Béla Hamvas were alive, he would write an essay about it, thus, I will try to make the best of it. Anyway, never a worse rainy day”.
