Other than Piazzolla, I doubt that most of us have heard of many of the composers in this programme, but that should not be cause for concern in a percussion concert. It is always amazing to watch the natural way in which top percussionists convey rhythm - totally tight and relaxed at the same time - and to see two performers instinctively acting as one can be a riveting experience.

Le Yu and Delia Stevens have been working together for some years and this shows in the degree of communication and understanding between them. This will be a truly fiery and fascinating concert, and a unique experience for many of us.
