The Fairly Relentless Fitkins – Tour – Autumn 2022

Kathryn Stott   Clare Hammond   Ruth Wall   Graham Fitkin

Graham Fitkin brings four unique musicians together to revel in the unremitting delight of ensemble piano playing.  Unapologetically direct and joyous, Fitkin’s eight-handed works for two pianos are complemented by equally lucid more intimate solos and duos from Unsuk Chin, Morton Feldman, Anna Meredith and Steve Reich.  A new Britten Pears Arts commission, ‘Bla Bla Bla’, for pianos, samplers and spoken voice delivers a gripping and provocative finale.   The inaugural performance took place at Aldeburgh Festival on 16 June 2022 and we are touring in the autumn.

The Guardian “scintillatingly energetic”
The Herald “as thought provoking as it is amusing, impressively complex and executed flawlessly”
