The London Piano Festival’s Artistic Directors Charles Owen and Katya Apekisheva showcase their solo playing and special collaboration as duo partners in a wide ranging programme featuring piano music inspired by Nature and Mankind.

Exquisite works by Liszt and Grieg capture the essence of the Romantic spirit contrasting dramatically with the relentless rhythms of Frederic Rzewski’s amazing depiction of American cotton mills. Invigorating solo pieces by LPF ‘Composer in Residence’ Jonathan Dove complete the evening.
