The concert for two grand pianos B like Britannia consists almost entirely of Russian premieres. The second concert in the programme will feature works by composers of the 20th century English musical Renaissance Arnold Bax and York Bowen, the British Orpheus Benjamin Britten and, finally, the many-faced Richard Bennett, composer of the post-war generation. The audience will travel from impressionism to neo-classical music and jazz through a mixture of high and low art, typical for the late XX century.
