While Two Pianos performance scripts have common elements, each of our events is tailored to the specific venue, featuring different music and different incidents in our character's lives. Each performance is video-recorded to capture unique elements of the larger story.
We also create highlights videos from each of our performances. The most recent set comprises three Untermyer Gardens-Yonkers videos that respectively capture the Untermyer connection, a recreation of Rachmaninoff music performed by Anna and Halina in 1936, and the Varshavski/Shapiro Duo playing a vivid Polish piece written during the time of the Warsaw Ghetto.
A "Sizzle Reel" (January 2022) showcases the Two Pianos backstory plus segments from rehearsals, presentations or performances in Philadelphia. Leipzig, and Newark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yALh89WDNs0&feature=youtu.be
