TRANSIT[ion] at ppIANISSIMO Festival

Friday 22 March, 2019 at 7pm

BNR Concert Studio, Sofia (BULGARIA)


TRANSITION by Tricia Dawn Williams (Malta) transforms the piano recital into an interdisciplinary performance featuring motion capture technology, video-art, electronic music and extended piano technique. The programme presents a portrait of the avant-garde piano that stretches almost one hundred years of repertoire. Each work breaks new ground as the composer navigates through uncharted waters to depict a new profile for the instrument.
