Great review for Pekinel sisters' Bach disc in The Observer

The Observer 13th January 2005 Bach: Keyboard Concertos Güher and Süher Pekinel (pianos), Zurich Chamber Orchestra/Griffiths (Warner Classics 2564 61950-2) Few piano duos have had a more remarkable rapport than these twin sisters of Turkish-Spanish descent. The jacket picture bears witness to their identical good looks, the disc to their considerable skills as they romp through four of Bach's concertos for two keyboards in high style with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra under Howard Griffiths. Lightness of touch in the slow movements, fluent exuberance in the outer, these girls have the golden touch, as you can see and hear for yourselves when they play the C minor and C major concerti with the London Mozart Players at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 22 February.
