The Jussen brothers, winners of the first ever Concertgebouw Young Talent Award in 2011, have been praised internationally as soloists or as a duo. According to the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, “Under their hands, the two pianos form one flowing instrument”, while De Telegraaf writes of their seamless playing: “Two souls, one mind”. Their debut CD under contract to Deutsche Grammophon of works by Beethoven received platinum status, followed by several other successful releases.
