We'd love to see them playing together...

June 7, 2006 at 07:41 PM · I've recently been to an amazing concert of pianist Fazil Say. This guy's art is such a wonderful mix of sensitive musicianship and heart-warming wit... a couple years ago he toured around with Vengerov, which was a special combination of two very active volcanos (they got rather mixed reviews, though - just too much energy maybe?). This is only one example of an interesting violinist-pianist pairing, with the pianist having a full solo career of his own; while it didn't last (I don't have an idea whether it was meant to last at all), it was probably quite inspiring for both, and certainly for their public...

Which "couples" would you like to see on stage together? And more generally, what are your opinions about solo pianists as chamber music partners?
