NEOS 10918 November 2009
The Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo was founded in 1995 by Helena Bugallo (born in Mar del Plata, Argentina, 1971) and Amy Williams (born in Buffalo, 1969). It appears at such international festivals as the Numus Festival (Aarhus), Ojai Music Festival (California), Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, and ‘Unerhörte Musik’ (Berlin). Its repertoire encompasses 20th-century works by such American and European composers as John Cage, Morton Feldman, Stefan Wolpe, Igor Stravinsky, György Kurtág, György Ligeti, Mauricio Kagel, and Salvatore Sciarrino. The two musicians have collaborated with many composers, including Steve Reich, Lukas Foss, Klas Torstensson, Jukka Tiensuu, Erik Oña, and Kevin Volans, and premièred many works, some of which were specially composed for them. In 2000–01 they were fellows at the Schloss Solitude Academy in Stuttgart.
