About the Concert
Beethoven – Sonate Op.53
Grieg – Sonate Op.7
Messiaen – 2 Preludes
Olazábal – Sonatine

The program explores deeply the piano music history, with works from different periods and places. It’ll include sonatas by Beethoven and Grieg and modern music by the French composer Messiaen and an Argentinian demential score by Olazábal. The contrasts in the music are vast, from the brightness and the virtuosism by Beethoven, the glory and catharsis by Grieg, to the gloomy and introspective by Messiaen and the expressionist power in Olazábal’s Work.
