Cobalt Duet and Duo Series - Piano
For their new monthly duet and duo series at Lit&Phil, Cobalt Duo invite you to perform with them, as part of the programme. Kate and Fumiko hope to programme as wide a mix of music styles as possible and show the fantastic and varied music written for four hands one piano and for two pianos.
Please submit your repertoire suggestions (and timings for your piece/s) here and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop in to the Library. Kate will be in touch if your piece fits the programme, which might be themed, or have a particular era, or composer focus.
