In the pre-recording era, piano duet arrangements of orchestral music were a major industry. Dvorák’s likeable arrangement of the ‘New World’ avoids the trap of over-writing that can bedevil the medium, although it can’t help sounding like reduced orchestral music. Mendelssohn’s ‘Italian’ [sic], however, sounds like a pianistic creation in its own right. Fine, immaculately balanced and paced performances. Award ***
