Occupy the Pianos Festival 2018

WE COME TOGETHER Rzewski

Steve Martland: Mr Andersons Pavane – Rolf Hind, Ben Smith (pianos)

Maxwell Davies: Miss Donnithorne’s Maggot – Elaine Michener/Lore Lixenberg, voices

George Barton, conductor
David Alberman./Zoe Martlew/Stuart King/Siwan Rhys/Craig Apps/Nancy Ruffer

Two of the country’s most fascinating vocalists in very different repertoire: Rzewski’s blistering shout-out for political action launches the night, and Maxwell Davies incendiary portrait of a woman on the edge rounds it off. Sandwiched between, a cool but acerbic piece from the much-missed and always politically engaged British composer Steve Martland.
