First performance in London of the recital-length 10th Piano Concert, a collection of 70-odd pieces (which are approaching completion) each lasting about a minute. This is a set of discrete works, each of which is complete in itself as distinct from being a set of “miniatures” or “sketches”. There is a deliberate concentration on unusual and varied aspects of rhythm, resonance (especially those exploring the sostenuto pedal) and musical appropriation.
