I'm glad to see this video posted here. I discovered this duo about 6 months ago, and I can't stop listening to their recordings. They have an excellent video of Sor's 'Souvenir de Russie'. I never considered playing without nails to be an option, but I've been doing it ever since seeing this video, and I'm enjoying it. Now saving up to have a Panormo copy built...
For some reason, I guess from seeing their videos, I assumed that one was playing with nails and the other without. I've never read anything to lead me to believe that, though, just something that I subconsciously decided. There are other duos that are formed that way, the Schneiderman-Yamaya Duo, for example.
