Piano Concerto

for Piano, Orchestra and Video
Duration ca. 28 minutes
2014

In Piano Concerto the perfect, classical grand piano is confronted with a battered, almost completely broken, grand piano in a sort of virtual double concerto. The soloist, Nicolas Hodges, sits across from a video doppelgänger playing the damaged instrument that has been dropped onto a concrete floor from a height of 8 meters. Confronted with the damaged, out of tune piano we may experience the newly tuned, classical grand piano and symphony orchestra in a slightly different light. The composer insists however that this is not just a broken instrument – it is a new, “naturally prepared” instrument with an expanded palette of sounds and its own poetry and beauty.

Piano Concerto was premiered by Nicolas Hodges and the SWR Symphony Orchestra at Donaueschinger Musiktage 2014.
