Katia et Marielle Labèque
une vie à quatre mains

This, the first biography of sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque’s renowned piano duo, was written by music journalist and critic Renaud Machart. And he does indeed have a great deal to say about this singular-yet-dual path: the Labèques have performed with the most famous orchestras in the world and they are also part of the Baroque-music community, where they play on antique pianos; Katia has a band and performs duos with the singer Sting or her boyfriend, David Chalmin (from the group Red Velvet), while Marielle sticks to duos with her older sister and her marriage to orchestra conductor Semyon Bychkov. They could settle for raking money in with Poulenc and Mozart concertos, but from early on, they have commissioned new works. They are torn between avant-garde concertos and the beloved classics that are so dear to their audience. But their deepest desire is to discover new things, to constantly renew themselves. With photography by Brigitte Lacombe, Renaud Machart’s book allows us to enter into the private lives of this unpredictable duo.

The first biography of the Labèque sisters’ famous piano duo, by music critic Renaud Machart, with photographs by Brigitte Lacombe.
