Eve Egoyan

We present concert pianist Eve Egoyan, one of Canada’s most revered musicians, for the first time in Winnipeg, performing a pair of distinct concerts:

Folklore
Thursday, February 26, 2015, 8pm                                                
Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall
University of Winnipeg, 515 Portage Ave.

A showcase of Eve’s astonishing range in four contrasting works by James Tenney, Per Nørgård, Linda Smith and Michael Finnissy. Throughout, Eve investigates the notion of musical layers from every angle – weaving voices in waves of shifting density, singing lines through rich harmonies, stacking simultaneous musical gestures.

Simple Lines of Enquiry
Friday, February 27, 2015, 8pm
Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall
University of Winnipeg, 515 Portage Ave.

An eloquent and quietly emotional convergence of music and images, Eve performs Ann Southam’s transcendental work for solo piano alongside David Rokeby’s extraordinary video Machine for Taking Time. The stillness and intimacy of Eve’s performance will invite listeners’ into an environment of deep listening and contemplation.

Egoyan’s take on new works is stunning… the spaces in between the notes were still charged with presence…I even found myself confusing sound with touch. – The Globe and Mail
