MULTI-STORY CHAMBER: BARTOK Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion

Aug 28 2016 20:00 - 20:45

Bold Tendencies, Floors 7-10, SE15 4TG London


As part of Multi-Story Orchestra's expanded chamber music series in the Hay Bale Auditorium, Bela Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion will be presented. It is an exhilarating, virtuosic ensemble piece - the two percussionists play seven instruments between them and, as is characteristic for Bartok, the two pianos are treated as huge percussion instruments. Bartok transforms melodies and patterns from Hungarian folk music into his own modernist musical language between the instruments.

With Richard Uttley and Kate Whitley (pianos), Jude Carlton and Elsa Bradley (percussion)


Please note that the entrance to Bold Tendencies has changed this year, so we’ve provided instructions to help below. The performance is taking place on Levels 7/8 of Peckham Car Park, SE15 5HQ. See http://boldtendencies.com/#visit for a map.

Access requirements:

If you have any access requirements as our main entrance is through a stairwell, please get in touch with Tom Kelly, Site Manager for Bold Tendencies tom@boldtendencies.com, so we can ensure we meet your needs by meeting you to come via another (non-public) entrance.

Access Bold Tendencies by foot:

Exit out of Peckham Rye station and continue straight ahead through the tunnel with Jenny’s Cafe on your right. Turn left and cross over Rye Lane, continuing straight towards Peckhamplex Cinema, passing Santander on your right. Take the staircase directly next to the cinema on the right to enter Bold Tendencies. There may be a queue for Bold Tendencies but you can pass this with your ticket(s) for the concert. Continue up the staircase until you come out onto the roof of the car park. From the roof, veer diagonally right until you see a ramp which takes you down to concert levels 7/8.

Vehicle access:

There will no longer be parking available on levels 0-10, however there is very limited Pay and Display on level -01. We strongly advise that you do not arrive by car where possible but if necessary, see Southwark Council’s website for more information on local parking options.
