Well, this looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. John Lewis was one half of the legendary 1970s piano duo with Dave Smith. Hugh Shrapnel was a member of the (can we repeat legendary? Oh, okay, we will) legendary minimalist quartet the Promenade Theatre Orchestra. Both composers have come up with loads of great pieces over the years, so we expect good things from this concert. And the free wine’s a bit of a draw!
Hugh Shrapnel and John Lewis Piano Duets and Solos
Saturday 27th September 6.30 pm
Schotts Music Publishers, 48 Great Marlborough Street, London W1F 7BB (Nearest tube Oxford Circus)
Shrapnel and Lewis’s music complements each other. The former’s amiable sepia-tinted portraits of S.E. London life and locations contrast with the latter’s more aggressive jazz-tinged depictions of the Chemical Elements.
Expect train journeys, rare-earths, cemeteries, evil-smelling liquids and much more…
