This talented South American duo brings precision, clarity and an unexpected laid-back charm to the Billy the Kid Suite, drawn from Copland’s original two-piano score, the colourful Danzón cubano and assorted arrangements culminating in Leonard Bernstein’s brilliant transcription of El salón México. Entertaining if hardly essential listening. Anthony Burton
