Britten & McPhee Piano Duets

20 October 2013, 5:45pm

The Francoise-Green Piano Duo

Antoine Francoise & Robin Green (pianos)

Britten - Introduction and Rondo alla Burlesca Op. 21
Colin McPhee - arrangement of Balinese Gamelan music for two pianos
Britten - Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, arr. Mc Phee for two pianos.

As a scintillating extra to our weekend of Britten songs, the prize-winning Francoise-Green Piano Duo present an early-evening concert in place of a pre-concert talk. One of Britten’s only works for two pianos is set alongside Colin McPhee’s transcriptions of Balinese gamelan music; Britten had visited Bali and was fascinated by the music he heard there, and he famously recorded these arrangements with Colin McPhee.
