Mischa and Cipa Dichter, pianists
Jill's guests this week are husband and wife duo pianists Mischa and Cipa Dichter. Both students of the distinguished pedagogue Rhosinna Levine, the two met at the Juilliard School after Mischa had won the Tchaikovsky competition in 1965. Although acclaimed as solo pianists, the two have been performing together to sold out audiences for years, and have, in this 250th anniversary year of Mozart's birth, released a double CD of the composer's complete piano works for four hands. The album also contains some surprising and rare arrangements of the composer's works by Edvard Grieg and Ferruccio Busoni.
