The young pianist Inga Fiolia hails from the Republic of Georgia: after having performed her début at the Ruhr Piano Festival in 2018, she now returns with a remarkable programme. In the first half of her recital she not only presents two masterpieces by Frédéric Chopin, but also rare gems by 19th-century Russian composer Mikhail Glinka and by her compatriot Sulkhan Tsintsadze. The second half of the recital is devoted to works by Ludwig van Beethoven, whose birth anniversary we celebrate this year. Inga Fiolia and Moroccan percussionist Rhani Krija ask themselves “what Beethoven might have done with his music if he had had the variety of timbres of today’s percussion instruments at his disposal”. The two artists combine the music we know so well with new rhythms “that don’t come from classical music and don’t end in jazz – especially since Beethoven was a thrilling improvisor!”
