Fallbrook Music Society presents duo piano April 24

FALLBROOK – Continuing its goal of bringing new and more accessible concert programs to the community, Fallbrook Music Society presents the Paratore Brothers at the Bob Burton Performing Arts Center on Sunday, April 24.

The dynamic program features Anthony and Joseph Paratore in a dueling piano showdown of some of the most popular literature written for two and four hands piano.

Fallbrook Music Society executive director Ann Murray said, "This concert is a ‘must see’ for anyone and everyone. The brothers are funny, talented and widely considered the best two-man orchestra in the world."

Tickets are free and can be obtained through a variety of community partners: Fallbrook Library, Chamber of Commerce, The Angel Society of Fallbrook, and the Village News.

Born in Boston of Italian descent, the Paratore Brothers come from a large, close-knit musical family. Joseph began his solo career at age 17 and debuted with the Boston Symphony Orchestra while Anthony toured in South America.

Widely recognized as a leading duo piano team of their generation, the Paratore Brothers have appeared on celebrity series throughout the United States and Europe, including festival performances at Lincoln Centre’s Mostly Mozart, Spoleto USA, and the Vienna and Berlin Festivals, among others. They have performed with the New York Philharmonic and the Boston, Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras. European orchestra engagements have included the London Symphony, and the Berlin, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, among others.

The April 24 free concert features both Russian and American composers in a diverse and clever program. The first half includes the ever-popular Rachmaninov’s Suite No.1 Fantasy while the second half includes Points on Jazz by Dave Brubeck, and Gershwin’s energetic Rhapsody in Blue.

“Joseph and Anthony are equally skillful but play completely differently,” said Murray. “One is expressive and explosive, while the other has a more reserved, gentle style. This concert highlights the true meaning of artistic interpretation.”

The 3 p.m. concert will be held at the Bob Burton Performing Arts Center, 2400 Stage Coach Ln. A short program preview will start at 2:30 p.m. More information is available through or by calling Fallbrook Music Society at (858) 663-9853.
