Impossible Brilliance: The Music of Conlon Nancarrow

Last weekend’s festival of music by Conlon Nancarrow at London's Southbank Centre marked the centenary of his birth and included a chance to hear his complete Studies for Player Piano.  Yours truly went to almost the whole lot, plus the closing recital by the Arditti Quartet, and my report on the weekend can be read at Classical Source.  If Nancarrow’s music is new to you, try the video above for starters.
