BON VOYAGE
IGOR AND OLGA PIANO DUO

This CD by Russian husband-and-wife piano duo Igor Machlak and Olga Kharitonova is, as the title suggests, connected with travel - first, the journey from country to country, from piece to piece - from America, to Germany, Russia Spain and thence to Australia; also the journeys undertaken mentally by composers - exemplified here by the Spanish Rhapsodies by Moszkowski and Ravel, and even the piece by Grainger which is based on folk tunes from the Faroe Islands. The duo themselves undertook a journey when they moved from Russia to Australia in 1995.
