The début album of the PianoDuo Takahashi|Lehmann marks the beginning of the cooperation between the brilliant duo and Audite. This and the following album will explore the multifaceted cosmos of transcriptions for piano duet.

In this recording, the musicians focus on three orchestral and ensemble masterpieces, arranged for piano duet by their own composers. These transcriptions come alive thanks to the suspense between the piano’s own sound and the suggestion of colours which do not form part of the instrument’s spectrum.

The PianoDuo Takahashi|Lehmann was founded in Berlin in 2009. The musicians perform in many European countries as well as in Korea and Japan. Norie Takahashi first came to prominence by winning awards at numerous competitions, including the Leeds International Piano Competition and the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels. She received artistic inspiration from distinguished musicians such as Bruno Gelber, Robert Levin, Pascal Devoyon and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

Björn Lehmann studied with Ferenc Rados, Leonard Hokanson, Robert Levin, Zoltan Kocsis, members of the Amadeus Quartet, Hartmut Höll and Irwin Gage. In 2011 Björn Lehmann was made a professor at the Universität der Künste Berlin. He regularly gives master classes and appears as soloist and chamber musician in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
