From New England to the far west and from Minneapolis to the southland, the talented and imaginative piano team of FERRANTE AND TEICHER has emerged in the past several years as one of the nation’s foremost concert attractions. A personal appearance by this charming and personable duo almost unfailingly means standing room only audiences, whether it be at any one our colleges that they so often visit, or in auditoriums from the world famous Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Lincoln Center to the smaller arenas in the American heartland.
A FERRANTE AND TEICHER concert is something very special. The highlight is, of course, the dazzling display of keyboard pyrotechnics that has made them one of the biggest-selling recording acts in the world for more than a half-decade. Other key features include the keen imagination of their musical arrangements for a lush, string-filled orchestra, their painstaking and meticulous approach to their presentation, and the rapt attention that FERRANTE AND TEICHER devote to all details so often neglected by other stars, such as the lighting, the sound, and even such smaller minutia as seating arrangements. All of this is reflected in a rapport with audiences that is manifested practically the moment that these popular gentlemen step on to the stage, and the communication between artists and onlookers builds and builds as it is fed by a unique brand of warmth, amiability and humor that is distinctively FERRANTE AND TEICHER and has rarely been equaled on the concert circuit.
This album is a faithful recreation of a FERRANTE AND TEICHER concert. Everything that countless thousands of fans have enthusiastically responded to is here. This collection is a must for everyone who has seen and been conquered by the artistry of FERRANTE AND TEICHER. For those who have not been fortunate enough to see these wizards perform, it also indeed stands up as superb entertainment. For a concert by FERRANTE AND TEICHER is not a concert in the traditional sense of the word. It is really two magnificent performers displaying their musical brilliance, sharing the lighter melodies that they enjoy, and exhibiting their sheer happiness at being able to do what they do best for appreciative devotees. One listening to this program will vividly demonstrate why a FERRANTE AND TEICHER concert is an event of monumental importance just about everywhere and anywhere in America.
