RECITALS AND CONCERTOS

PIANO PICTURES

AND ALL THE GOOD STORIES…

I am thrilled to present my new recital programme for next season which includes the original version of Mussorgsky’s monumental Pictures at an Exhibition for solo piano, in a concert which is also scheduled to be recorded on CD/DVD in Hamburg in 2018.

For this concert I have chosen some of the greatest piano music of all time; romantic pearls by Grieg and Rachmaninoff put together with fascinating musical pictures. There is a woman´s emotional change from extreme sensitivity to hysteria in a second… The mysterious cowboy´s exstatic dance in latin american rhythms… Even a visit at home with a totally crazy witch! 

It´s breathtakingly beautiful – it´s chockingly load – it´s softer than soft – It´s swinging´- it´s wild  – it´s….

ROCK AND ROLL!

At most of my concerts Mogens Wenzel Andreasen, Denmark´s “grand old man” within music history and a great speaker, tells the audience about the music and gives them all the good stories about the composers. This makes the audience listen in a new way and it becomes easier to get touched – and immerse into the music…

 

 

 

“At the age of 6 I started to listen to a collection of the greatest piano music of all time on my fathers record player – and I dreamt about playing this music one day…” Pål Eide
