What does virtuosity mean in the 21st-century? Hasn’t the physical battle already been lost in a computerised world? In Ian Pace and Frederik Croene’s eclectic programme Michael Finnissy takes on Carl Czerny’s mechanical etudes and Adam de la Cour’s Con-join for two handcuffed pianists pushes the boundaries of physical limitations.
