Played by the picture of Nobody

Egon Schiele
PLAY, the festival of arts and humanities held at the King’s College London, continues apace and on Wednesday 19 October 2016 the ensemble Lontano conducted by Odaline de la Martinez and the Tali-Varbanow Piano Duo will perform a programme of music by Harrison Birtwistle, George Benjamin, Rob Keeley, and Silvina Milstein, with Milstein, Keeley and Benjamin all holding posts within the music department at King's College, London.

The programme explores music for two instruments, as many of the pieces include pairs of matched instruments from two trumpets in Birtwistle’s Five Little Antiphonies for Amelia to two pianos in Silvina Milstein’s In a bowl of grey-blue leaves, and two double basses & harp in her and a thousand golden bells in the breeze. The evening ends with Rob Keeley's Fiestas for two pianos, and there will also be music for solo piano and solo violin by George Benjamin and by Harrison Birtwistle.

The concert is free, but you need to register on the Eventbrite website. Further information from the King's College website.
