Programme Note

This concert is an evening of dance-inspired music for piano duet, performed by two of London's leading pianists.  Three pieces by Percy Grainger display the influence of folksong and morris dancing, filled with Grainger's characteristic vigour and humour.  The rhythms and harmonies of modern jazz and funk are explored in Iain Farrington's virtuosic Dance Craze.  Maurice Ravel's haunting, sensuous and hypnotic depiction of the waltz finds its fullest expression in La Valse, originally intended as a ballet.  Finally, one of the most revolutionary and astonishing works of ballet music, Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, is performed in its original piano duet version.
