The international twin duo-pianists Claire and Antoinette Cann make a welcome return to the Riverfront with a sparkling programme including Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Borodin and Elliott. The twin sisters are known for their virtuosic arrangements of orchestral works and especially the French repertoire featured on their CDs for which they have won Gramophone Critic’s Choice and Classic FM Critic’s Choice. Their performances on one and two pianos have taken them to Europe, USA, Japan, the Middle East and Australasia. They have also performed two piano concerti with many of the major London Orchestras, and at the Barbican, the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall.
This performance is held in memory of the distinguished composer, Michael Elliott.
