Six grand pianos and six virtuoso pianists from New York bestride St David’s Hall’s stage. Described as “awesome” (Sequenza 21) and “inventive” (New York Magazine), Grand Band champion new music from today’s composers, ranging through classical and pop-crossover to post minimal. There are classics by Reich, Lang and Glass, a world premiere from Ben Wallace and music from Wales by John Metcalf.
