The Duo D'Accord (pianists Lucia Huang and Sebastian Euler) is well known among piano duo enthusiasts and has enriched the music world with some extremely interesting, critically acclaimed CDs. With some unusual takes on the standard repertoire already in their catalogue, this time the two musicians set out to do something very special: an "Hommage à Weber" - as the title says. It not only contains the complete works for piano duet from the composer of "Der Freischütz", but also arrangements of some opera overtures and a special adaptation of the 2nd piano concerto for piano four hands by the Weber’s friend and biographer, Friedrich Wilhelm Jähns: a first recording and a masterstroke of artistic curiosity. In addition, there are two encores by Ignaz Moscheles and Leopold Godowsky, created as a tribute to Weber based on his immortal melodies.
