When learning and performing piano concertos. Is it better to be accompanied by your teacher (2 pianos) or use Music Minus One ?

Cool! A concerto? Is it still that Bach one that you mentioned elsewhere?
I think that being accompanied by your teacher is a good idea. Much of the time, pianists are lonely.... I have'nt really have much thought into concertos. Get back to you when something pops into my head.

Haha, trust me, I was not the one who wanted to try concertos.
Yes, it's still the Bach one.
Playing with my teacher would be fun, but may not sounds as good as the orchestra.
I'll wait and see if other people suggest anything. Thanks Becibu. :)

Then why are you doing it? Really, concertos are long . I don't know how long that Bach concerto is but often they are 50 pages in length.
Concertos were written to show off. Its probably human nature to want to show something off. When a musicain reaches this unlimited expertise with an instrument wheather is would be piano, flute, harp, violin, guitar or even digeridoo that is what the concerto is written for.
By the way, does it contain a part for a candeza?

I think the duet is favorable. I find it awkward with Music Minus One because your piano is never really perfectly "in-tune" with the back-up band and that bugs my ears. Also, you almost need to study the recording to learn the nuances of the orchestra. It's more fun to play with a live person and you can feed off of each other.
