Past, Present – Beethoven, Chopin and the modernity
In 2015, concerts of the Tour in Centre-Val de Loire region are giving by 2014 laureates of the 11th International piano competition of Orléans, Imri Talgam and Aline Piboule, and will be dedicated to composition universe of romantic era great masters, Beethoven, Chopin, confronted with contemporary productions.
Harmony and melody, sound masses confrontation and polyphony delicate beauty, colours that collide with each other or melt into, the musical universe known as “contemporary” measures up to same issues and the “modernity” some answers to asked questions don’t stop their acting sometimes strange and always surprising of likeness regarding answers.
This is the aim and amusement of these confrontations, that should arouse audience interest especially young musicians one, trying these mirror effects. Mazurka by Chopin and Mazurka by Thomas Adès, of course, but more amusing Beethoven’s Bagatelles and Variations by Webern. Music always wins at these games.
