Unlike the only published piano duet arrangement by Max Reger, which has serious performance limitations, Eleonor Bindman’s new transcription of the Brandenburg Concertos highlights their polyphony, imagining how Bach might have distributed the score if he had created four-part inventions for piano duet. With an equal partnership between the two instrumentalists, using the modern piano’s full potential to convey the unique scoring and character of each work, the concertos are ordered to create an engaging listening sequence. Both Eleonor Bindman and Jenny Lin receive critical accolades wherever they perform. The Poughkeepsie Journal write of Bindman: “…a strong pianist who attacks her work with great vitality and emotion. She is extremely expressive and mesmerizes her audience with her flair and technique.” Gramophone magazine hailed Lin as “an exceptionally sensitive pianist,” while The Washington Post labeled her as “…surely one of the most interesting pianists in America right now…”

REVIEWS:

Beyond mere curiosities, these transcriptions allow for familiar works to be experienced in new and valid ways. Pianists Bindman and Lin make a great case for them.

– Fanfare

Only pianists of the highest caliber could deliver these performances. Nothing seemed out of place, and the phrasing and dynamic shaping of the lines were exceptional. This is a fresh look at some of Bach’s greatest works in piano arrangements that work quite well.
