About

Six pianists. Sometimes soloists, often accompanists, always performers. This second recording by the Orford Six Pianos ensemble marks the 10th anniversary of a group whose name evokes the French 20th-century composers known as “Les Six”.

“Anything rhythmic works well with this lineup — Russian music and symphonic pieces are perfect for pianos,” says ensemble member Mariane Patenaude. For this album, Olivier Godin, Francis Perron, and Louis Dominique Roy have transcribed works by Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, and Khachaturian, adapting them for piano sextet.
