Pianist David Greilsammer returns to Sheffield to take the audience on a musical journey to the heart of a strange and dazzling labyrinth in this solo recital.
On An Overgrown Path, Leoš Janáček’s anthology of short piano pieces, forms the basis for the programme, with other pieces interspersed like hidden vistas revealed by a winding path. These inset moments include everything from Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s gallant flourishes to a new work from Ofer Pelz commissioned specifically for this project, and they climax in a piano arrangement of the French Baroque composer Jean-Féry Rebel’s strikingly dissonant depiction of primordial Chaos. This intricate programme explores the ways that feelings of inner disorientation can lead to the pursuit of new routes and ideas.
David will return to the stage after the concert to offer insight into his work.
