CLOSER

‘CLOSER’ was born in the period of Corona crisis. It is a performance of 20min. format. Each performance hosts only 1 (bubble of) audience in a space.  The performer will use a candle and incense during the performance, the program consists of classical and contemporary piano solo works. Through this performance, the experience of social distance and isolation turns into personal, individual, and unique spiritual journeys to celebrate and embrace lives.

BACH & KURTAG

J.S.Bach's music often has its special place for each individual, which is not an exception in György Kurtág's case as well.  

Kurtag made many Bach transcriptions for 4 hands and performed them with his wife Marta. Combining the music by Bach and Kurtag, 

this program tries to find new personalities to piano works by both composers.
