Benjamin Britten originally composed his Gemini Variations for the Hungarian twins Zoltan and Gabor Jeney, who were talented players capable of performing all the instrumental parts. However, Britten knew it would be difficult to find two players with the same abilities as the twins, so he composed this alternate version featuring four musicians playing flute, violin, and piano four-hands (i.e., two pianists at one piano). Recorded on 08/20/2017. (#33142)
