Piano Circus


David Appleton, Paul Cassidy, Kate Halsall, Dawn Hardwick, Semra Kurutac, James Young


Consisting of six performers circling six pianos, Piano Circus provides an intricate high-wire act of technical mastery. Join us for an atmospheric evening of music and multimedia that will highlight the past, present and future of this hypnotic UK supergroup. The program will include US premieres by Colin Riley, as well as works by long-time collaborator Graham Fitkin. Sonically complex yet immediately accessible, the six-member Piano Circus has culled influences from all areas of the musical spectrum. Classical, jazz, pop, rock, improvisation and standard composition meld seamlessly to create a sound like no other. Formed in 1989 to play Steve Reich’s Six Pianos, Piano Circus has created a vast repertoire of more than one hundred works, including pieces written for the ensemble by such luminaries as Kevin Volans, Brian Eno, Nikki Yeoh and Terry Riley.
