Biography

"This is duo pianism of a high level indeed..."
New York Concert Review

"..with their barnstorming technique....the Taiwan natives allowed every piece they played to speak for itself."
The Washington Post.

"As Liszt and Rachmaninoff define lush, the Long Duo defines cohesiveness of purpose, absolute accuracy of execution and a near-spiritual transparency."
The Post and Courier, Charleston, South Carolina.

"First class playing from both performers... splendid balance musically and physically. The players have everything they need for professional success-confidence, technique and musicality."
Allison Nelson, President of Jury, Ellis Duo Piano Competition

"Long Duo achieved the highest standard in duo piano playing. In terms of balance, clarity of layers, tone colors and thoughtfulness, this CD deserve the highest praise."
Classical Music Magazine, Taipei, Taiwan.

"This is a marvelously talented duo"
Dr Henry Janiec, Spartanburg Symphony

"the Long sisters' glittering collective technique, interpretive sensitivity, and the uncanny communion of souls that perhaps only siblings can share, and the result was a rare evening of music that will haunt me happily for a long time to come. "
Lindsay Koob, Charleston Today

"The Duo has a well-formed aesthetic and a highly accomplished technique that nevertheless does not draw attention to itself. They play as one player; their attacks simultaneous and their long lines pass back and forth without seam."
Brian Schuth, The Boston Musical Intelligencer

"This music requires pianism of muscular force and brawn, and you simply won't believe the immense prowess these sisters from Taiwan bring to the table… I can tell you the Long sisters deliver the goods, and if it's the Vaughan Williams concerto you're after you won't be disappointed."
Steven J Haller, American Record Guide

"This is an essential release not likely to be duplicated in the near or far future. Grab it!"
"The talented and comely (judging from the booklet cover photo) Taiwanese sisters Beatrice and Christina Long demonstrated considerable enterprise in selecting a couple of rarely performed two-piano concertos (Suesse and McDonald)."
Paul A. Snook, Fanfare

( Long Duo) the sisters are superb performers….A most unusual and welcome disc. The repertory is a much-needed contribution to the piano concerto literature.
John Sunier, Audiophile Audition

"This recording is one of the most enjoyable releases I've heard all year – the performances are alive with missionary zeal, and it is exciting…"
Graham Rickson, the Arts Desk, London
