Piano piano
with works by Busoni, Beethoven and Wagemans

Pianist Tamara Stefanovich plays with Amsterdam Sinfonietta in works by Wagemans and Busoni. Beethovens Große Fuge receives a prominent spot in this otherwise highly pianistic programme.

The Guardian has described the pianist Tamara Stefanovich as ‘Fearless, dazzling and exceptional’. She joins Amsterdam Sinfonietta as soloist in a feast for piano. Busoni wrote his concerto for piano and string orchestra at just 12 years of age. Unlike his later monumental works, this uninhibited and fresh early work has more in common with Mozart and Schubert. In Drie Vlinderdansen (Three Butterfly Dances), Peter-Jan Wagemans reveals his fascination for the colourfulness and agility of butterflies, ranging from the great gliding Atlas Moth to a cloud of wildly fluttering whites. Beethoven’s Große Fuge and the Cavatina are not only sharply contrasting works, they are undoubtedly also the composer’s most sensational achievements. De Große Fuge is viewed as his most visionary composition. In Stravinsky’s words: ‘this music will remain contemporary forever.’
