Aurora Quartett (pianos)
Beginning in the music circles of the aristocracy of the 19th century, music for 4 pianists has been highly popular.It is well known that Chopin and Liszt used to perform together with colleagues music for eight hands, as they did, for example, in 1838 in Rouen playing such a transcription of Beethoven’s 8th symphony. Since that time, numerous ambitious and brilliant original compositions for four pianists have been created of which the Norwegian works by Bjørn Kruse, Trygve Madsen and Wolfgang Plagge are among the most outstanding. The Aurora Quartett is a renowned international ensemble of pianists that is dedicated especially to the performance of music for four pianists.
