There is nothing to rival this stunningly performed compilation of unique arrangements of world-famous hits. The American piano duo Anderson & Roe is known all over the world for its original programmes and arrangements. This is Anderson & Roe's fifth album. The wide-ranging programme – from Schubert to Freddy Mercury – pays tribute to the diverse aspects of motherhood.
This album features works that pay tribute to the diverse aspects of motherhood, from the sacred (Ave Maria) to the saucy (Mrs. Robinson), and everything in between. Motherhood, perhaps the prototype of creation, has compelled the duo to utilise their full creative potential as arrangers and interpreters. Queens and saints, homemakers and lawmakers, scientists and artists, goddesses and mortals: the rich complexity of motherhood has inspired this musical tribute.
The Anderson & Roe Piano Duo has been described as “the most dynamic duo of this generation”, “rock stars of the classical music world”, “exhilarating” (Gramophone), and “the very model of complete 21st-century musicians”. Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe are revolutionising the piano duo experience for the 21st century.
