Horowitz Times Two!
That’s what the newspaper headline read following one of their earlier performances together.
Anthony and Joseph Paratore came from a tight-knit musical family. They began as solo pianists, and their careers immediately took off. It wasn’t long before they realized they could soar even higher together. Their big break came when they replaced an ailing Leonard Bernstein at the Spoleto Festival USA. Their performance moved New York Times critic Harold Schonberg to write these six immortal words: “They have taken over the town.” Forty years later, they still are. The Paratore Brothers have collaborated with jazz great Dave Brubeck and Sir Peter Ustinov. They’ve opened NBC’s Today Show and brought down the Tonight Show. They’ve hosted their own PBS special and appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Performance Today.” They’ve entertained the Presidents of Germany and Italy and the folks at the White House, too. They’ve also done the impossible: premiered Alban Berg’s transcription of Arnold Schonberg’s Chamber Symphony, Op. 9 for one piano, four hands, long “considered too difficult” to play.
