pianist between tradition and avantgarde
Listening habits are challenged and curiosity aroused through creative programme concepts. The meaningful juxtaposition of classical and modern music brings their connections to life and makes their disjunctions exciting.
traditional: classical- romantic piano recital with music from Bach to Ravel
contrasts: programs in which classical and contemporary piano music is contrasted thematically
paired: Mozart and Crumb, Ligeti and Chopin, Brahms and Stockhausen
interwoven: Goldberg- Variations by Bach with the piano pieces by Karl -Heinz Stockhausen
as a block: Europe meets America- classical music from Europe meets the various musical styles from America like minimal music, jazz and others
only avantgarde: contemporary and very recent music is introduced and presented in the presence of the composers in a lecture recital

AMERICA MEETS EUROPE
This programme traces a musical arc from the roots of European classical music to the various American musical styles of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Through the cultural conditions in America, and not least through the confrontation with Afro-American culture, musical styles took on certain facets which combined elements of the European tradition with the sounds of the New World in hitherto unheard ways: from the jazz-influenced compositions of Gershwin or Corea to the avant-garde tonal language of Crumb and Corbett to the minimal music of John Adams – which almost touches on pop music – this programme shows the colourful variety of America’s modern music.
