Spanning a three-year period between 2017-2019, Keith Tippett and Matthew Bourne performed a series of two-piano concerts – nearly all of which were recorded. Discus Music is incredibly proud to make the fruits of this vital work available as a double album, comprising of two beautifully-recorded performances from 2019: a set of individual studio pieces recorded at Leeds Conservatoire is paired with a remarkable live performance from Daylight Music at Union Chapel, London; which sadly proved to be Keith’s final public statement.”

The Discus Music double album also includes a set recorded in studio conditions at Leeds Conservatoire on 8 and 9 July 2019

Here is the video. The cameras were operated by Dave Barnard & Joel Gutteridge, the editing done by Foliage Films, sound recording was by Sam Hobbs and photography by Paul Carrano. With thanks to Ben Eshmade.
