Tricia Dawn Williams transforms the piano recital into an interdisciplinary performance

TRANSITion is a portrait of the avant-garde piano that stretches almost one hundred years of repertoire. Each piece on the programme breaks new ground as each composer navigates through uncharted waters to depict a new profile for the instrument. 


TRANSITion is a unique experience that transforms the piano recital into an interdisciplinary performance featuring motion capture technology, video-art, electronic music and extended piano technique. 

In 2019, the project TRANSITion was selected by Classical:Next as one of the 11 most innovative and inspiring projects out of 200 applicants worldwide. Classical:Next is a platform that brings together the diverse scenes of classical music and offers them a forum to exchange and develop new ways for classical and contemporary music.
