Recently, the city of Charlotte was treated to a double piano concert by the unique and talented Jussen brothers and it sounds like they' put on a wonderful show together, switching between each other without a hiccup. This is pretty astounding considering the precision required for such a task but apparently they're amazing and well-suited for performing together.
For more than 20 years, I've covered hundreds of classical concerts featuring guest solo instrumentalists, never experiencing the slightest difficulty identifying any soloist as soon as he or she strode out of the wings. Until last Friday, when the Jussen brothers, Lucas and Arthur, came to play the Mozart Double Piano Concerto with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra at Belk Theater. Even after consulting the program notes, which informed me that Lucas (born 1993) was the elder by three years, I just couldn't be sure who was Lucas and who was Arthur. Their headshots weren't labeled.
