Warsaw | 'The last recital': concert of Zygmunt Krauze

polmic

'The Last Recital' is a summary of Zygmunt Krauze's 60 years of piano experience. This applies both to the repertoire - mainly 20th-century music, and to the manner of performance, which combines accuracy with the score, improvisations and theatrical elements. The concert will take place in Nowy Teatr on the 4th of October, 2022 at 19.00.

The recital programme includes masterpieces of 20th century music and the most famous bits of the classics. It is a collage of piano literature from Bach until today, performed without interruptions, creating surprising contrasts, showing classics improvised along with theatrical elements.

We will hear compositions by Stockhausen, Messiaen, Cowell, Andriessen, Webern, Satie, Feldman, Lutosławski. There are also interludes in which the pianist performs excerpts of works and improvises on themes of Chopin, Beethoven, Haydn and Brahms. Each time, "The Last Recital" sounds different, depending on the spontaneous decisions of the pianist who, apart from playing the keyboard, uses gestures, vocal and theatrical effects and piano preparations.
