Perth Piano Sundays
Fauré - Dolly Suite
Poulenc - Sonata for Piano Duet
Debussy - Six épigraphes antiques
Debussy - Petite Suite
Stravinsky - Trois pièces faciles
Ravel - Mother Goose Suite
A unique opportunity to hear two of today's finest pianists playing popular piano duets. Both Paul Lewis and Steven Osborne have long associations with Perth Concert Hall but have never appeared here as duet partners. The music they have chosen is utterly charming culminating in Ravel's Mother Goose Suite with its evocative titles such as Tom Thumb, the Fairy Garden and Beauty and the Beast.
Classical pianist described by Alfred Brendel as 'developing into one of the outstanding pianists of his generation', combining formidable technique and profound musicality. Also won the Royal Philharmonic Society Recital of the Year Award (2006).

Beautifully spoken, beautifully played (New York Times) 'Steven Osborne's piano-playing was some of the finest I have heard...' (The Times) 'Steven Osborne brought to Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 1 his distinctive brand of musical vitality and spontaneity, a fresh and spritely view on a popular work' (The Scotsman) 'The audience, as one, was agog... Osborne's attack is ferocious and fearless, his tenderness beyond words... This is the best it gets' (The Observer) 'Osborne has absolutely nailed the work... he played it with glittering panache and awesome brilliance' (The Guardian).
