Lp released in This album is listed with the title Encores! Unlike any other pair of duo-pianists, however, Ferrante and Teicher had played together for many years before beginning a professional career, having met as youngsters of six and nine at the Juilliard School of Music, where both were pupils of Carl Friedberg.
Almost from the very beginning of their studies at Juilliard they worked together, studying under ensemble teachers. Reverie - Ferrante & Teicher - Popular Classics some time after graduation from Juilliard, Ferrante and Teicher pursued separate concert careers, playing together only for their own pleasure.
Inhowever, they decided to form a team, Reverie - Ferrante & Teicher - Popular Classics since that time their career has been a joint venture. They then decided to return to the concert field for which they had spent so many years preparing.
These programs were such an outstanding success in every city they visited that Ferrante and Teicher were booked for concerts for their second season. Annual six-month tours have made Ferrante and Teicher the most widely-travelled duo-piano team in the world. Some years ago Ferrante and Teicher began to experiment with their pianos in an attempt to discover how great a range of musical sounds other than the Reverie - Ferrante & Teicher - Popular Classics ones could be drawn from the instruments.
Their interest in unusual sound effects has been an important addition to the music-making of Ferrante and Teicher, but it has not led them to give up the classical two-piano literature which has been the center of their musical lives since childhood.
On this recording they are heard in conventional two-piano versions of favorites from the standard classical repertoire, most of these brilliant arrangements having been made by Ferrante and Teicher themselves.
The multiple channels of stereophonic equipment Stop Draggin Around - Lenny Kravitz - Mama Said enhance the sound of this monaural recording, making it richer and more brilliant.
To achieve the greatest fidelity, each Westminster record is mastered at the volume level technically suited to it. Therefore, set your volume control at the level which sounds best to your ears and, for maximum listening pleasure, we recommend that you site at least six S.E.X - Various - Peanut Vendor Meets Bongo Nyah from the speaker.
Play this recording only with an unworn, microgroove stylus, preferably diamond. Many thanks to Chris Locke for providing photos and liner notes from the original release.
