Concert: Boundless Brahms
- Sat 14 May 2022
- 9:00 pm
This is the first collaboration between acclaimed multi-genre dancer Antonio Bukhar and Magdalena Riedl, joined by the outstanding Zany Denyer and Clara Hope Simpson.
The performers, coming from all corners of the world, tell a unified story: With brilliant intuition Antonio expresses the core of Brahms piano trio no.1 through dance and movement, a pure act of connective humanity. This is a visual journey of love, longing, despair, exhilaration. Brahms started this piece at the age of 20 and came back to it as an old man. He took it apart, partly changing the structure completely, or sometimes just refining the original ideas. It’s a unique musical example for reflection spanning a whole lifetime.
The process of putting this together will be discussed in a talk at the end. Come to the Burgess Foundation and enjoy a drink while letting your heart and soul fly!
