Ivan Šiller
piano recital
Wednesday 10. 10. 2012, 7pm

Ivan ŠillerIvan Šiller is an interpret whose “programme” is presenting musical works which are as actual as possible and on the stages, he tirelessly enforces a concept „contemporary = relevant“. Naturally, everything new is seldom welcomed with warm belief, hence after a brief look at the concert dramaturgy across Slovakia, interpretation of “fresh” creations might seem minor. But people as Ivan Šiller guarantee that contemporary spectator will access also contemporary opus.

This recital will present progressive solutions of two (already) classics of 20th century.

Brin (1990)

Leaf (1990)

Wasserklavier (1965)

Charles Edward Ives 
(1874 – 1954): Piano Sonata No.2 „Concord“ Mass. 1840 – 60
