Jonathan Powell (piano) Murail & Stockhausen

Jonathan Powell (piano) Murail & Stockhausen


Pre-concert talk at 6.45pm

Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Klavierstücke are highly diverse. They take the listener on an extraordinary journey from the post-Webernian (no. 5), through meditative incantation (no. 9), extreme violence (no. 10) to the melody-driven narrative of no. 12, an excerpt from his opera cycle Licht.
Tristan Murail’s Territoires de l’oubli is probably the first extended work that applies the ‘spectral’ method to the solo piano. The instrument is used as a resonating chamber, resulting in a huge wash of sometimes very gradually changing sound.

Programme:

Tristan Murail - Territoires de l’oubli
Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke V, IX, X, XII

Duration: 2:55 (including pre-concert talk and interval)
