Ligeti's Etudes for Solo Piano

Friday 27 April 2018, 19.30-21.30
Room 25
£12, Members/concessions £8

Cathy Krier performs Ligeti’s late piano etudes in the African Galleries – pieces which were directly inspired by polyrhythmic structures in traditional African music.

Hungarian composer György Ligeti (1923–2006) composed 18 etudes for solo piano between 1985 and 2001. They are one of the most significant sets of piano studies of the late 20th century, combining virtuosic passages with expressive content.

Cathy Krier piano

Born in Luxembourg in 1985, Cathy Krier began taking piano lessons at the Luxembourg Conservatoire at the age of five. In 2005 Cathy joined Cyprien Katsaris for a four-hand performance at the inauguration of the Philharmonie Luxembourg. In 2006 she played at the Ruhr Piano Festival following an invitation by Robert Levin to join his masterclass. She was named 'Rising Star' by the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) for the season 2015/16. In the 2017/18 season, she performed at the production Funeral Blues at Grand Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg, as well as in concerts with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. In September 2017 her CD Masques, featuring music of Szymanowksi and Debussy, was released on the Cavi-Music/France Musique Partner label.
