THE ANCIENT AND THE NEW

Monday 26th September 2022, 8.30pm

Oratorio di San Filippo Neri

Maria Grazia Bellocchio piano

Maria Grazia Bellocchio

Maria Grazia Bellocchio is not only an excellent pianist: she is also a constantly expanding laboratory of ideas. Her most recent “creation” is entitled Aphorisms and revolves around one of the monuments of the second half of the 20th century, Játékok (Games), by György Kurtág: a living collection of album sheets, memories, transcriptions, dedications and improvisations. And just as if the Hungarian composer’s “games” were a tree, the recital grafts the branches generated by its lymph onto the main trunk: Couperin, Scarlatti, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Bach… The result is an infinite play of mirrors.
