Jian Liu, Gabriela Glapska, Sam Rich and Naoto Segawa present two contrasting pieces for two pianos and percussion written in the first half of the 20th century - Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion by Béla Bartók and Rapsodie Espagnole by Maurice Ravel. This unusual combination of instruments displays both a fair share of challenges for all the performers involved as well as introduces a fascinating palette of colours and timbres It is worth remembering that the piano is technically a percussion instrument itself, and the pieces are in essence percussion quartets.
