KONCERTAS IR INSTALIACIJA FORTEPIJONUI IR BALDUI I Kosmos Theatre
18:30 | Rugsėjo 20d. KMKT didžioji ir mažoji salės
A live concert and a sound sculpture and installation linked by sound technologies examine the dualism of the domestic-physical and artistic-ideal nature of the piano – the paradoxically harmonious roles of one of the most popular musical instruments and home furniture.
Croatian pianist Ivo Pogorelich has said that a piano without a pianist is just a piece of furniture. It is a piece of furniture in the house, usually laden with vases and crockery, whose real concert and musical potential, regardless of its manufacturer and mechanics, is determined by the people around it.
Is our potential all up to us? How can a piece of furniture that has smothered music in itself break free from its closed lid? What kind of dreamlike creature does the vocation locked inside us and trying to escape with all our might make us?
These questions will be explored in a concert featuring excerpts from the most important pieces of piano music, during which the live music will become a sonic dream of a transformed piece of furniture.
The music montage of the piano part of the concert includes over twenty compositions of romantic, modern and contemporary music. They were written by Johannes Brahms, Ludwig van Beethoven, Erik Satie, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, George Crumb, Arvo Pärt and other composers. The montage is based on works of romanticism and modernism.
The pieces are arranged in the montage like a piano as a stream of independent consciousness – the harmonic interweaving of romantic sections becomes a completely different composition, in which lies only part of the expected traditional tonic chord. Modern compositions are “tied” in a similar way, only instead of harmony, articulation is used – in the connecting links, a related movement of musical sounds, phrasing, and sometimes just waiting for a pause are sought.
