Ashok Gupta piano
Jâms Coleman piano

Claude Debussy Prèlude à L’Après Midi d’un Faune
Alex Mills Crossing Over (World Premiere)
Igor Stravinsky Rite of Spring
Richard Wagner Liebestod (5’)

This performance sees two great 20th century works stripped down and presented in their purest form on two pianos. They are separated by an exciting new work by one of the alumni of Cheltenham Festivals’ Composer Academy, Alex Mills. Debussy’s work was originally conceived as a symphonic poem for orchestra, and later provided the basis for Njinsky’s iconic choreography as a ballet. Stravinsky’s uncompromising masterpiece The Rite of Spring remains essential listening over 100 years after it was first created, and still has the power to shock and astonish.
