Messiaen: the nocturnal birds from “Catalogue d’oiseaux”
Beethoven: Fortepianosonata, op. 106
Pierre-Laurent Aimard embarks on a fascinating, confusing, brilliant journey through the night. No other pianist could play the nocturnal birds from Messiaen’s “Catalogue d’oiseaux” as authentically as he. But by performing Chopin’s Nocturnes before Messiaen and adding Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier Sonata”, he reveals the echo of Romanticism in modern times.
Introductory talk with Pierre-Laurent Aimard in the concert hall at 7.15 pm
