Final free lunchtime concert of 2012 features celebrated piano duo

11 Dec 2012

On Thursday 13 December (1.10pm) in The Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama.

Walter Carroll Lunchtime Concert - Richard Casey and Ian Buckle

  • Maurice Ravel - Ma Mère L’Oye suite
  • Micheal Finnissy - Wild Flowers
  • George Gershwin - An American in Paris

Join us for the final free lunchtime concert of 2012. Celebrated piano duo Ian Buckle and Richard Casey present the original two piano versions of Ravel and Gershwin, both of which were later orchestrated and became known as ballets. Finnissy’s intoxicating 70’s work, composed for the Labeque sisters, is at once sensuous and terrifying and is a rare must to hear.
