Two Piano Music by Sherwood and Parry
In this video Simon Callaghan and Hiroaki Takenouchi, the Parnassius Piano Duo, perform the fearsome Scherzo from the Suite for Two Pianos by the little-known composer Percy Sherwood. They have just completed recording Percy Sherwood’s Suite for Two Pianos in C major, Percy Sherwood’s Sonata for Two Pianos in C minor, and Hubert Parry’s Grosses Duo in E minor, for release on the Lyrita label later in the year.
