Pianists: Daniella Acker, Andre Shlimon, Jolyon Laycock, Geoff Poole, James Drinkwater, Giuseppe Bavetta & Natalie Haupt.

Two’s company, but three’s a riot!

Probably the first concert of its kind in the UK. This music is as stunning as it is rare - extraordinary contemporary music exclusively for three pianists at one piano. SCA’s programme spans the whole gamut of the genre – from simple tunes for beginners to displays of breath-taking virtuosity. Piano-6-hands has the “cool” factor. In recent years it has become a fashionable concert genre attracting large and enthusiastic young audiences.

As well as classics by Schnittke, Castérède and Boutry, we present triets by a younger generation of composers including SCA members Laycock, Pitts, Shlimon and Harvey.

Don’t miss it! Programme to include Schnittke's Hommage a Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Shostakovich,

the groovy Metrorhythmia 1 by Tomislav Baynov,

Jacques Castérède

beautiful Pensees & Montmartre from Maison Satie by Paul Robinson,

the playfully polyphonic Are You Going? by John Pitts,

the triply Double Vision by Frank Harvey,

and music by Roger Boutry - Le voleur d'etincelles

Dionysis Boukouvalas

Kaja Bjornvedt - 5 Piquant Pieces

and others, including specially written pieces by Brian Inglis and Christopher Scobie - Tintinnabulation II -
