Piano Rapture: Modern Masterpieces with Roger Admiral
Monday, October 28, 2013, 8pm
Winnipeg Art Gallery
300 Memorial Ave.
For his return to Winnipeg, Albertan powerhouse Roger Admiral performs some of Canada’s most startling solo piano works. Staged in the beautiful space and splendor of the WAG atrium, this will be a concert of fine music next to fine art. Come hear some of Canada’s best kept secrets!
The five composers on the program, disciples of famed European composers György Kurtág and Iannis Xenakis, cover the gamut of 20th century modernist styles. From Christopher Butterfield’s (BC) classic Pillar of Snails to the prairie premiere of Gyula Csapó’s (SK) La Travesía Intermitente hacía Los Galápagos, as well as the imaginative pianistic writing of Howard Bashaw (AB), James Harley (ON) and Michael Matthews (MB/QC), this concert will feature a wide range of aesthetics and styles by composers hailing from across the country.
Curator: Michael Matthews
Note: this concert replaces the original program featuring Daan Vandewalle.
