In anticipation of Father’s Day this coming Sunday, we selected three father-and-son musician duos for today’s Showdown: Violinists David and Igor Oistrakh, pianists Rudolf and Peter Serkin, and Yehudi (violin) and Jeremy (piano) Menuhin.
You voted for Rudolf and Peter Serkin, and we’ll played the pianists performing together today at noon.
David and Igor Oistrakh perform Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante.
Rudolf and Peter Serkin perform Schubert's March No. 2 in G major for piano four hands (not the Mozart piece).
Yehudi and Jeremy Menuhin, with clarinetist Thea King, perform Bartók's Contrasts for Clarinet, Violin & Piano, Sz. 111 (not the Beethoven piece).
