Tops. That was a nice one. That was a better one.

0:18:230:18:26

This is Suher Pekinel.

0:18:380:18:40

And there, a piano's length away, is Guher.

0:18:400:18:43

Physically, they are uncannily alike.

0:18:430:18:46

Pianistically, you certainly can't distinguish them

0:18:460:18:48

at a single hearing.

0:18:480:18:49

Their appeal springs from that uncanny rapport

0:18:510:18:54

which belongs to identical twins.

0:18:540:18:56

But how does it work in practice?

0:18:560:18:58

You know, when you look to each other,

0:18:590:19:01

the eye takes away a lot of concentration.

0:19:010:19:05

And when we play like this, we don't have the eye contact,

0:19:050:19:08

so the concentration is even more on the ear

0:19:080:19:12

and I know how she will react and I feel it.

0:19:120:19:14

It's only a feeling. I can't say anything more about it.

0:19:140:19:18

So now, from Nashville, we welcome Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn.

Well, the next item Marisa Robles and I have played many time.

0:30:100:30:15

It's a piece Mozart wrote - in spite of him hating the flute.

0:30:150:30:18

He wrote it for a father and his daughter

0:30:180:30:20

but, although you notice my grey hair,

0:30:200:30:22

Marisa is not my daughter - she only looks like my daughter.

0:30:220:30:25

We're going to play for you the last movement

0:30:250:30:27

of Mozart's Concerto For Flute And Harp in C major.

My first solo guest tonight has been acclaimed

0:41:380:41:41

as the leading British baritone singing in opera today.

0:41:410:41:44

He is, of course, Thomas Allen,

0:41:440:41:47

who's going to join me now in a duet from Mozart's Magic Flute.
