ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Given the huge popularity of piano holiday music, it is astounding that there has not yet been an album of a four piano quartet in this genre! Wait no longer - enjoy your Christmas favorites and more, performed by four pianists at four Steinway grand pianos by the unique and amazing group -- piano4!

Since 2001, Philadelphia-based Piano4 has ignited audiences across the US. 4 virtuosic pianists on 4 matching Steinways take the earth-shaking legacy of the “First Piano Quartet” as fodder and fuse with their own incendiary talents. 

Piano4 tours with these pianos, thrilling audiences with their stunning virtuosity and style. Their four distinct piano parts dazzle with scintillating fingerwork, passion, humor, and bravura artistry. During a concert at Washburn University, Piano4 received three standing ovations before intermission!

Piano4 programming ranges widely from Bach to Broadway. The core of their repertoire is the library of 400 transcriptions of the First Piano Quartet (FPQ), of early NBC Radio fame, after whom Piano4 is modeled. Programs include Bernstein's Candide Overture, the Valse from Faust, pieces by Gottschalk and Gershwin, works of Chopin and Liszt, plus orchestra, piano and 'pops' classics. Among other themed programs is 'The Art of Transcription' aimed at the chamber music audience. Piano4 now creates and commissions new works, concertos, and transcriptions, adding to this unique tradition.

Works with orchestra include the Bach Concerto for 2,3 and 4 Keyboards, the Inventions of Morton Gould, originally written for the FPQ, Rhapsody in Blue and others.
