Dear Friends of Chopin,
Loathe it or love it “contemporary music” existed in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Kotaro Nagano invites you to come stretch your imagination and discover what contemporary composers, Chopin and you have in common? Being bold experimenters composers create innovative and beautiful “contemporary” music. Being the audience how will you compare the pair? Come back to the future with us and judge for yourself!
Kotaro Nagano of Japan, 1st Prize and People’s Choice winner of the 2nd Australian International Chopin Piano Competition, 2014 returns to Canberra to dazzle with an innovative program featuring Saariaho, Webern, Gubaidulina, Bolcom, Messiaen, Takemitsu, Cage — and Chopin.
