Kit Armstrong: Five Centuries of Piano Music

Concert #1 – 1520-1620: The Golden Age


€ 35 | 25 (reduced)

Arcadi Volodos auf dem Klavierfestival Ruhr 2020

Works by Thomas Preston, John Bull, Giles Farnaby, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis and Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck

Johann Sebastian Bach: O Mensch bewein Dein Sünden große BWV 622
Piano music is much richer and more varied than the justifiably popular “core repertoire,” which is mainly from the 19th century. Kit Armstrong demonstrates the variety beyond those confines in his almost encyclopedic survey of five centuries of piano music, which he will present in five recitals at the Anneliese Brost Musikforum Ruhr. The overview ranges from pieces by John Bull and Thomas Tallis written around 1520 up to our times, with works by George Gershwin, György Ligeti, and Kit Armstrong’s own compositions. Within the scope of two days, the young American pianist and music researcher not only presents a thrilling compendium and kaleidoscope of keyboard music history; he also draws our attention to extraordinary, surprising links and reciprocal influences. Embark with us on this thrilling, enlightening musical voyage through the centuries!
