Pascal Rogé is one of the great interpreters of French piano music; his name is simply synonymous with the best playing of French repertoire in the world today.
 
For several years, Pascal has enjoyed playing recitals for four hands/two pianos with his partner in life and music Ami Rogé.  Together, they have travelled the world appearing at prestigious festivals and concert halls including New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s King’s Place, The Sage Gateshead, City Recital Hall Angel Place Sydney, the Hong Kong Joy of Music Festival, the Singapore International Piano Festival, the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, the Beijing International Piano Festival, on tour in New Zealand, at Incontri in Terra di Sienna in Tuscany and at many British festivals.
 
A tour of Japan saw them perform the premiere of Ami Suite, a new piece for four hands written especially for them by the Japanese-American composer Paul Chihara.
 
Additionally they have made a growing number of orchestral appearances together playing Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos, Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Two Pianos in E Major, Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos in E flat, K. 365 and Carnival of the Animals, including the Orchestre National de France, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, RTÉ National Symphony of Ireland, Het Gelders Orkest, Shanghai Symphony, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM Mexico City.  Together they gave the premiere of a newly-commissioned Concerto for Two Pianos by Matthew Hindson with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy.  They have broadcast for Radio France and for BBC Radio 3’s Ravel Day. Pascal and Ami performed Germaine Tailleferre’s Concerto Grosso with the BBC National Orchestra & Chorus of Wales in March 2015, broadcast live of Radio 3.
 
Pascal and Ami have recently released a CD of sonatas by Poulenc on the American label Urlicht Audiovisual. They recorded Wedding Cake, a CD of French repertoire released on the Onyx Rogé Edition in 2010. Their second disc for Onyx, Pascal & Ami Rogé play Debussy & Ravel was released in 2013 (Gramophone “Editor’s Choice”) and described by Télérama as: “beautiful, seductive . . . consummate playing.” Their third disc for Onyx, works for two pianos and percussion by Bartok, Ravel and Hindson, will be released in October 2015.  
 
This is their Maltese debut.
