From Netherlands Radio 4 featuring Aussie composer Kate Moore's new 13-minute concerto for two pianos :

From Radio 4 ( Google translate):

"The tenth edition of the Pianoduo Festival (from 30 Nov to 4 Dec at various locations in Amsterdam) closes with a grand exclamation mark in the Muziekgebouw. Spectacular duo playing in the world premiere of a new concert by Kate Moore and even four pianos celebrate the magic of the keys in multiple ways. Piano duo Scholtes & Janssens and the equally brilliant Israeli Silver Garburg Piano Duo join forces for Bach's Concerto for four pianos and string orchestra, rarely heard live, and a performance of Ravel's Bolero on four pianos. Not the colors of the orchestra, but the hypnotic repetition of the theme gets all the attention.

If one contemporary composer can further underline the magic of two pianos, it is Kate Moore. With her melodically driven minimalism, this Australian composer needs few resources to conjure up with sound and colour. For this reason, in 2017 she was the first female composer to win the Matthijs Vermeulen Prize. And for that reason alone the first performance of her Concerto for two pianos and string orchestra is an unmissable closing of the Pianoduo Festival. "
