Date

20 Aug 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Genre

Classical

Details

Music that is:

volatile and erratic.

broken and unreliable.

uncompromisingly physical.

wildly and blindingly colourful.

so quiet you hear it in your

fingertips.

so loud it violates your personal

space.

able to make you squirm. make you

sweat.

structurally labyrinthine, fiendishly

complex.

brutal yet beautiful; chaotic yet

inevitable.

Music that takes our capacity to

understand to its limits.

Music that stares into the darkest

recesses of the human psyche.

Come join us for an evening of the music

we like.

Formed

at the Royal College of Music in 2013, the B-L Piano Duo is on a mission to

play the creepiest, craziest music they can get their hands on. They have

worked with world-renowned composers as diverse as David Lang and Michael

Finnissy, and have also given the premieres of several pieces written for them

– among them, works by fiercely original young composers like Nathanael Gubler,

Amy Bryce, Ray Leung and Ernest Tay. They were winners of the prestigious Royal

Over-Seas League Competition (Ensemble Category) in 2017.
