Duo Jatekok

In 2007, Naïri Badal and Adélaïde Panaget officially created their duo, playing, on the advice of Claire Désert, a contemporary piece by Kurtág: Játékok. A work that was to crystallise their artistic intentions, made up of small, contemplative lyrical miniatures that are brimming with emotion and sensitivity. Játékok, ‘games’ in Hungarian, a concept that was to become the hallmark of their music-making. The winners of two prestigious international competitions for piano duo (in Rome in 2011 and Ghent in 2013), they have built up a repertory reflecting their dynamism and expressiveness. Their first album ‘Danses’, released on the Mirare label in 2015, received unanimous praise from the press. The duo has presented this programme at the most renowned festivals and in the concert halls most sought after by classical musicians, among them the Festival de La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de
Nantes, the Warsaw Opera House, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Flagey Hall in Brussels, the Dvořák Museum in Prague, the Teatro Borsellino in Sicily and the Auditorium del Massimo in Rome. Their second album, titled ‘The Boys’ and released in 2018 through Alpha Classics, is a tribute to the American piano duet of Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale. Last year, they participated to the album “Saint-Saëns: Le carnaval des animaux – Poulenc: Double Concerto” with l’Orchestre National de Lille, Lucie Leguay and Alex Vizorek.
