Oxford Lieder Festival 2013

OXFORD LIEDER FESTIVAL
FREE CONCERT OF GAMELAN ARRANGEMENTS

Free to 8pm concert ticket holders
20 October 2013 – 6:45pm
Holywell Music Room

The Francoise-Green Piano Duo

Antoine Francoise & Robin Green (pianos)

Britten – Introduction and Rondo alla Burlesca Op. 21
Colin McPhee – Balinese Gamelan music for two pianos
Britten – Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge arr. Colin McPhee

As a scintillating extra to our weekend of Britten songs, the prize-winning Francoise-Green Piano Duo present an early-evening concert in place of a pre-concert talk.

One of Britten’s only works for two pianos is set alongside Colin McPhee’s transcriptions of Balinese gamelan music. Britten had visited Bali and was fascinated by the music he heard there, and he famously recorded these arrangements with Colin McPhee.
