Impressive Requiem on Piano
A selection of reviews:
"On the intimately singing Bechstein this great team opted for a lyrical approach. As a consequence of the modest sound the contrasts between light and dark remained human. [.....] The accompanying duo let Brahms fully appeal to one's imagination."
(Wenneke Savenije, NRC Handelsblad 01.10.05)
"With a firm grip on the form Van Doeselaar and Jordans showed that Schubert's music for four hands does well by lighter bass sound and more differentiation in character in the various registers. [.....] In 'Ein deutsches Requiem' the Bechstein appeared to be capable of impressive dynamic contrasts." (Huib Ramaer, Volkskrant 03.10.05)
"Jordans and Van Doeselaar have earned quite a reputation as a piano duo, and with this tremendously good performance they did themselves full justice." (Rinus Groot, Haarlems Dagblad 03.10.05)
"The melancholy and the charm that prevail in Schubert's Fantasy in F minor as well as its passionate moments were put side by side very subtly with sublime ensemble, resulting in a fascinating performance." (Gerben Bergstra, Friesch Dagblad 05.10.05)
