Pierre-Laurent Aimard live in recital at the Konzerthaus Dortmund
Pierre-Laurent Aimard gives a digitally streamed recital without audience at the Konzerthaus Dortmund this Sunday, 26 April 2020 at 18.00CEST
The programme idea, called ‘Beethoven and the Avant-garde’ which includes works by Beethoven, Ligeti, Benjamin and Berg, centres around getting us to see Beethoven differently by juxtaposing his works alongside those of other ‘disruptors’. E.g. Beethoven’s BagatellesOpus 119are interspersed with Ligeti’s Musica Ricercata
The pianist presented the idea at the beginning of the year at Paris’ Cite de la Musique and again last month in London. He planned to present it to audiences in New York and Boston this month before the coronavirus intervened.
To find out more about Pierre-Laurent’s thoughts on the programme, David Allen (NY Times) has interviewed the pianist, which you can read here.
