Stefan Wolpe’s escape from Nazi Germany was fraught with uncertainty and danger. During the months following Hitler’s rise to power Wolpe went into hiding, while completing one of his most compelling works: the March and Variations (1932-33), a work of Beethovenian power, scored for two pianos. The piece has largely been forgotten until Quattro Mani’s revival of it, and their sensational premiere recording on Bridge's Music of Stefan Wolpe, Vol.8. Wolpe’s ballet score, The Man from Midian (1942) a work based on the Old Testament, is centred around the story of Moses, and is the other major work on this disc. The virtuoso piano duo team, Quattro Mani (Susan Grace and Steven Beck), has worked with many of today’s leading composers, and is devoted to the expansion of the repertoire for duo piano. QM’s new Wolpe disc is the duo’s 14th disc for Bridge Records.
