Two Pianos, Eight Hands: Graham Fitkin and Friends

divider
Ox Mag What s On Graham Fitkin

Graham Fitkin and Friends are four unique musicians who revel in the unremitting delight of ensemble piano playing.

Unapologetically direct, joyous and highly energetic, Fitkin’s eight-handed works for two pianos are complemented by equally lucid and more intimate solos and duos from Unsuk Chin, Anna Meredith and Steve Reich.

A new Britten Pears Arts commission, Bla Bla Bla, for pianos, samplers and spoken voice delivers a gripping and provocative finale. Book Now from Music at Oxford: https://bit.ly/3Rp152G

‘A delight that defies all fashionable labels and conjured its own whirlygig of ideas’ The Guardian (on Graham Fitkin)

7 October, 7.30pm | Sheldonian Theatre
