The Edinburgh Piano Duo of Margaret Wakeford and Simon Coverdale present an afternoon concert for young and old on the superb piano found in the welcoming atmosphere and acoustic of St Andrew's and St George's West Church. Flanking some more unusual items in the programme are classic four-handed works by Schubert – his late Variations on an Original Theme in A flat, D.813, and Saint-Saens – the arrangement by Paul Garban for piano duet of Le Carnaval des Animaux, a multi-scened parody couched in zoological titles including a special poke of fun at pianists themselves.
