Don’t miss pianist Vicky Chow (Bang on a Can All-Stars, Contagious Sounds) when she returns to Vancouver with a brilliant, tour de force programme: Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and the North American premiere of Steve Reich’s Piano Counterpoint.
2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Rite of Spring, a piece that caused riots at its premiere and influenced generations of composers, including Steve Reich. Vicky Chow helps mark the anniversary with a rare solo piano performance of this iconic score.
Vicky Chow has been described as “a monster pianist” (Time Out New York), “brilliant” (New York Times) and the “new star of new music” (Los Angeles Times).
Join her in celebrating Stravinsky’s Rite and witness a live performance of a new work from Reich, whom The New Yorker calls “the most original musical thinker of our time.”
The North American premiere of Steve Reich’s Piano Counterpoint features Vicky performing live against a backdrop of pre-recorded tracks played through 8-channel sound that surrounds the audience.
It’ll be an unforgettable immersion in sound.
