Ballet Music for 4 Hands

Ballet Music for 4 Hands

Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite

Ravel: La Valse


Stravinsky: Rite of Spring

Tim Horton and Viv McLean performed concerts together as pupils at Chetham’s School of Music. They have been friends ever since but only recently re-discovered their enthusiasm for playing together. Tonight’s programme suits them perfectly: a delightful mix of music from the ballets.

Since winning First Prize at the 2002 Maria Canals International Piano Competition in Barcelona, Viv McLean has had a successful career in the UK and internationally. He performs as a soloist, in concerto, with chamber groups and enjoys collaborating with other musicians, for instance, Natalie Clein and David Le Page.

Tim Horton’s career took off when he replaced Alfred Brendel at short notice in two performances of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the Royal Festival Hall, London. Since then he has played with many leading orchestras and toured widely with cellist Adrian Brendel. Tim is a member of the Leonore Piano Trio and Ensemble 360.
