Message from Roger Rowe:

It has been my ambition for some time to bring the Bartok Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion to Norwich. It is a marvelous work but infrequently performed because of the difficulty of getting the right musicians in place.

Simon Crawford-Phillips & Philip Moore are a stunning piano duo team and the two young O DUO Percussionists, Olly Cox & Owen Gunnell, have formed a charismatic team – just see them on youtube!   – all that and a what looks like a breathtaking performance of Stravinsky’s own piano arrangement The Rite of Spring. A chance of a lifetime and not to be missed!!

The enthusiastic O DUO percussionists have considerable experience working with kids and we have arranged for them to come to Norwich a day earlier to work with the children of Sistema Norwich.

The day will conclude with a Free concert by O DUO at the Walter Roy Theatre, Cecil Road (part of the Hewitt School with plenty of free parking) at 5.30pm for approx. I hour. This is part of our educational programme and members and friends are invited subject to seat availability.
