Four pianists play pieces by Graham Fitkin and Bushra El-Turk and music by Unsuk Chin, John Adams and others in a programme of music built from minimal materials.

Composer and pianist Graham Fitkin has been creating compelling, propulsive, layered music for several decades, with influences including his teacher, Louis Andriessen, and Steve Reich. Here he is joined by three collaborators in a programme which celebrates the huge diversity of music built from minimal materials. Graham Fitkin introduces the pieces which include his own Festival commission and a work by one of this year's featured composers, Bushra El-Turk.
