Items in the programme include classic four-handed works by Schubert – his late Variations on an Original Theme in A flat, D.813, and Saint-Saens – the arrangement by Paul Garban for piano duet of Le Carnaval des Animaux, a multi-scened parody couched in zoological titles including a special poke of fun at pianists themselves.

Come and savour the intimate soundworld of the Edinburgh Piano Duo in masterworks for one piano, 4 hands. Margaret Wakeford and Simon Coverdale are delighted to be returning to this magnificently refurbished venue to present two consecutive afternoon recitals which will both include the mighty Grand Duo D812 by Franz Schubert. Due to the symphonic proportions, opportunities to hear this are rare so it is not to be missed! Each performance will be partnered with a complementing work.
