Album Notes
With repertoire ranging from Mozart to ragtime, “Two-Piano Tapestry: Redekopp and Edwards” was recorded in response to audience requests.

Critics and audiences throughout Canada, the United States, Japan, and South Korea have praised the performances of duo piano team Redekopp and Edwards. Musicians extol them for their breath taking artistry, impeccable ensemble, innovative programming, and wonderful rapport with the audience.

In addition to a three-week tour of Japan and South Korea and performances in England, their concerts have included guest appearances with the Kenosha Symphony, the DuPage Symphony, the Bel Canto Chorus, the West Suburban Choral Union and Orchestra, and the Sullivan Chamber Ensemble. They have performed concerts on the Valley Concert Society Artist Series in Abbotsford, British Columbia, the Green Lake Festival at Lawrence University, the Paine Art Center and Arboretum Concert Series in Oshkosh, the Evenings at the Bernsen Concert Series in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the St. John’s Flagg Theatre Concert Series in Milwaukee. They have also performed at universities and colleges and on church concert series throughout Canada and the United States.
Redekopp and Edwards were featured artists in the Second International Romantic Organ Music Symposium held in Milwaukee, highlighting duo piano and rare piano and harmonium works by Saint-Saëns, Widor, and Guilmant. Invited to return for the English Romantic Organ Music Symposium, they performed rarely heard piano works by John Ireland, Frank Bridge and Herbert Howells. Other forays into unusual repertoire include performances of George Crumb's "Music for a Summer Evening" for two pianos and percussion, Bela Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, a premier performance of David Bohn's "Lontano" for two pianos, and duet and duo music from Japan and Korea.

Redekopp and Edwards have conducted master classes in Japan, South Korea, and the United States, and have presented lecture/recitals on duo and duet playing at several MTNA state conventions and at numerous piano teaching workshops.

The husband-and-wife team met while studying with Abbey Simon at Indiana University.

“..a union of spirit, gesture and virtuosity....hand in glove ensemble playing...fluid phrasing captured the music’s mood to perfection.... Decisive, flavorful, faultlessly transparent no matter how dense the textures or tangled the rhythms, this Bartok bore the stamp of finished musicianship.” Lawrence B. Johnson, Milwaukee Sentinel

“It was a beautiful concert – I stand in envy of how well you play while communicating the musical ideas with such conviction.” Kenneth Drake, professor emeritus, University of Illinois

Jeff Hobday

Student of Karin Edwards
In keeping with the CD's title, their playing is seamless, so that one hardly knows where one pianist drops off and the other begins. They play a wide array of styles with confidence and flare. They demonstrate the full range of sounds and colors possible with two pianos.
