Roger Woodward in his lumberjack shirt and Cecil Taylor in yellow boots, looked and sounded utterly different playing composed and improvised piano music, respectively, at a recital given first at the QEH and touring seven cities on the Arts Council’s Contemporary Music Network.  In their separate ways these two virtuosi are riveting and should not be missed…..

“Woodward played with astonishing calm… in Woodward I sensed the composer’s real intentions…  here is a player with real integrity.”  Christchurch Symphony, Rachmaninov Third Piano Concerto, 1995
