British Music for Piano Duet brings together works by twentieth century composers who, to a greater or lesser extent, wrote in the two-piano medium. Some of the works featured here are arrangements of pieces for alternative forces but the majority were written specifically with two pianos in mind. Several receive their first recording. The project is supported by the Berners Trust and the Thomas Pitfield Estate.
