I understand

Hardenberger & Currie

Saturday 11 Nov 2017 4pm

Part of Autumn Concerts

A pioneering duo formed by two of today’s leading instrumentalists performing music written especially for them is an electrifying prospect. After a first half performed by the duo alone, they are joined by masterclass participants to present music from Britten’s fanfare for a Suffolk cathedral to some of Steve Reich’s iconic series of works for multiple percussionists.
