Algemeen Dagblad – Friday 17 September 2011
Last year, the brothers Arthur (18) and Lucas (14) Jussen amazed the (inter)national classical world with their mature interpretations of the Beethoven piano sonatas. The album got platinum the very same year. On their new CD the brothers have literally joined hands for playing Schubert’s Impromptus, a series of works for solo piano, as well as his Fantasy in F minor and Four Polonaises – both composed for quatre mains (four-handed). Again Arthur and Lucas Jussen have achieved absolute sublime performances. Technically gifted, but – even more important – music of flesh and blood with a soul entirely in the spirit of the Austrian composer. Stilled, melancholic, full of joy and passion – the emotions the works of Schubert evoke are coloured with the brothers’ splendid and personal authentic style. In one word: phenomenal.
