In an enchanting and flavourful program of French, Russian and American works written for, or adapted for piano duet, Calgary’s Bergmann Duo balance Debussy’s pastel shades with the vital drive of Bernstein, and two of Rachmaninov’s two-piano suites.

Tableaux pour deux pianos features Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann, who have been performing together in Canada and Europe since 1989. Now based in Calgary, the musicians are also part of the Land’s End Chamber Ensemble.
