LEVIT / RZEWSKI: ALLE MENSCHEN WERDEN BRÜDER I
Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata Nr. 29, op.106, „Hammerklaviersonate ” (1814)
Frederic Rzewski: The People United Will Never Be Defeated (1975)
Two pianists will perform these works in this concert: Igor Levit who has achieved meteoric success within the international pianistic scene during the past few months and the US-American Frederic Rzewski, not only a piano legend but also an epoch-making composer. Rszewski will play Beethoven and Levit will play Rzewski. “The People United” is a powerful metaphor of crystallised musical architecture: an invocation to recall the tradition of free thought and social utopia which has formed the background to bourgeois music history since Beethoven’s time.
