Carter's Double Concerto from the Riot Ensemble

The Riot Ensemble
The Riot Ensemble is giving a rare performance of Elliott Carter's Double Concerto at LSO St Luke's on Friday 12 January 2018. The ensemble will be joined by soloists Adam Swayne (piano) and Goska Isphording (harpsichord) for the Carter concerto. This was written in 1961 and premiered by harpsichordist Ralph Kirkpatrick and pianist Charles Rosen (who described the work as "Carter's most brilliantly attractive and apparently most complex work"); in the work Carter divides the orchestra into two groups each led by one of the soloists.

The Riot Ensemble will be pairing the work with two works by two emerging American composers, Molly Joyce, one of seven composers chosen in the ensembles 2017 Call for Scores, will have a world premiere of a new work, and there will be the UK Premiere of Pierce Gradone’s To Paint Their Madness.

Full details from the Riot Ensemble website.
