ALESSIO BAX AND LUCILLE CHUNG, PIANOS
A Pianistic Partnership

“Bax and Chung are husband and wife, so it’s not surprising that their piano duets work so well. They share a brilliant clarity in their playing. In this scintillating recital, it’s hard to find even a fleeting moment where ensemble is less than meticulous.”
