The concert given by the HATO duo at Maison Jésus-Marie, on November 12, had everything to entertain the audience. The two pianists began their recital by presenting an all-Quebec suite of the repertoire of folk songs (arrangements for four-handed piano) by the Canadian composer, Violet Archer, with the piece "Ah! Si mon moine voulait danser”.
In keeping with the rhythm and tone, another suite for piano four-hands followed, composed by Georges Bizet, entitled "Jeux d'enfants".
Then, the two pianists who are also excellent soloists, played each in turn, a high-caliber musical piece demonstrating their immense talent. Tomoko Inui performed Johann Sebastian Bach's "Prelude in do minor" while Haruyo Yoshino-Platt performed Frédéric Chopin's "Ballade no 4 Op".
They finished their performance with a masterful version (piano 4 hands) of the famous piece by George Gershwin, "Rhapsody in Blue".
