The Labèque Way

Katia and Marielle Labeque

A new documentary about Katia and Marielle Labèque, The Labèque way, was recently released at the Valladolid Film Festival. Part classical, part avant-garde, part flamenco, the legendary piano duo Katia and Marielle Labèque are almost impossible to label. The Labèque way follows the unique pianists as they trace their Spanish roots playing Ravel's Bolero accompanied by Basque percussion, premiering a daring new commission, and taking part in many diverse artistic and personal adventures. Featuring friends and collaborators including Sir Simon Rattle, Semyon Bichkov and Alessandro Baricco, the film includes amazing performances of works by Mozart, Schubert, Ravel, Albeniz, Golijov and Gershwin.
