A local pianist has devised a way of performing Bach in three dimensions.
Luxembourg pianist Francesco Tristano (photo Marie Staggat) is constantly exploring new genres and ways of presenting music. His latest venture is to play Bach’s famous “Goldberg Variations” with a very special live projection. In his “Goldberg City Variations”, each of the 26,000 or so notes of Bach’s masterpiece, which is one of the most notoriously difficult pieces that a solo pianist can tackle, is translated into digital data that is used to construct a projected city.
Tristano has teamed up with production designer Edoardo Pietrogrande and visual artist Federico Nitti to create what promises to be a fascinating and moving audio-visual spectacle.
