Take one part infant prodigy, six years of age and already an accomplished musician; add one part dedication and the desire to master music; one part innate talent, bone-deep and God-given: In a mortar of granite discipline blend them gently and add a pinch of inspiration and a heaping measure of the will to make beauty live, and you have the living recipe for a consummate musical artist. Double the proportions, the ingredients and put the two finished products together, and you have created an even finer confection: The rich and brilliant unity of two phenomenal musicians, two compelling poets in melody.
Ferrante and Teicher, pianists par excellence, are a life-long team, remarkably alike, and as tantalizingly different as identical twins. Because we are dealing with artists here, with men whose overmastering concern with their product exerts a powerful influence on the undeviating quality of Let It Be - Ferrante & Teicher - Love Is A Soft Touch music.
These are no weekend tunesmiths, stretching a little talent and a lot of noise over a sudden hollow popularity. These are men whose firm musical foundation in the traditions of classical music has formed the basis for one of the freshest and most original approaches to contemporary Let It Be - Ferrante & Teicher - Love Is A Soft Touch music in recent years.
A strange vehicle for two classics pianists? Listen to their rendition in its depth and power of sentiment and emotion.
Not for the formal, schooled musician, you say. Listen to it, to the nuance of phrase, the innuendo of touch, the dimension of style I.O.U. (Update Edit) - Freeez - I.O.U. bring to it, their instrumental insight. And the point of it all, and the reason for this message to you is to alert you to what is happening here.
Ferrante and Teicher bring the solid foundations in technique and performance to the music of today, and, with verve and versatility unmatched in any comparable team, give it a power and vitality that only inspiration can supply. A rare combination. Skip to main content. Love Is a Soft Touch. About this album:. Lp released in Liner notes:.
