About

The year 1972 saw the death of Victor Babin, one half of the legendary Vronsky & Babin, arguably the most brilliant piano duo of the 20th century and a worldwide sensation for over three decades. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Babinís death Katerina Moskaleva and Alexey Pudinov, themselves two musical forces of nature, come together as TWO4PIANO, a duo perfectly suited for breathing new life into Victor Babinís appealing and colourful repertoire. Including newly rediscovered scores, this special programme takes us from Rachmaninovís unmistakably Romantic style via Borodinís rousing folkloric rhythms and Tchaikovskyís balletic waltzes to Babinís own remarkable evocations of a bygone era.

Katerina Moskaleva and Alexey Pudinov, together known as the acclaimed duo TWO4PIANO, won First Prize at the North West International Piano Ensemble Competition 2018 in Vancouver, Canada, performing widely in Germany and beyond, and also winning the Art Champion Competition in St Petersburg 2020. Their vibrant performances have been recorded on an album, Evocation of Dance, but this is their Naxos debut.

Katerina Moskaleva has won numerous awards, including prizes at the Steinway piano competition, the international competition Verfemte Musik (ostracised music), and the international piano competition Hans von BŁlow. Alexey Pudinov has performed widely and in distinguished company as a chamber musician, appearing at prominent festivals such as the Rheingau Musik Festival, the Pianofest in the Hamptons US, the Toronto Summer Music Festival, and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival. He won the Gershwin Best Performance Prize 2015 in New York, the Steinway Prize 2014, and the First LMN Menuhin Prize 2016 in Frankfurt.
