    Would like to see them come to the US more thoroughly and more frequently.

    They travel a lot ( when permitted) but indeed always Europe.

    Just finished listening to the Bach CD indicated in post #6.
    The brothers are, again, wonderful.
    Great balance in each of their hands, excellent command of piano dynamics and nuances, and good selections from the Bach cannon.
    However, the backing instruments/orchestra sounds rather limp.
    Simply not as strong as it should be. The fortes are far too weak, rhythm is off in places, some notes and phrases are either being held too long or not long enough.
    Can't help but wonder why; these guys/DG earn enough to hire the best supporting musicians possible.
    Were they in a hurry to finish the project due to some contractual agreement with DG?
    Would rate this a 5 on a 10 scale and therefore not recommendable.

    I have their Bach, Mozart, and Schubert recordings--all are very enjoyable.
