Fifty fingers, one keyboard. So commences Topology’s collaboration ‘Ten Hands,’ an hour-long ever-so-alive yet evocative adventure into the ensemble’s workings over the past year. With an almost seamless sweep, multiple musical layers and traditions unfold and reveal themselves apace but with poignancy and pathos. An evolving narrative delights and holds you in its thrall in possibly the quintet’s most dynamic piece in 2010.
