David Greilsammer, piano “The Labyrinth"

6pm doors • 7pm show


Pianist David Greilsammer takes a musical journey to the heart of a strange and dazzling labyrinth in this solo recital that spans musical eras. “On An Overgrown Path”, Leoš Janáček’s anthology of short piano pieces, forms the basis for the program, with other pieces interspersed like hidden vistas revealed by a winding path. These inset moments include everything from Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s gallant flourishes to a new work from Ofer Pelz commissioned specifically for this project, and they climax in a new piano arrangement of the French Baroque composer Jean-Féry Rebel’s strikingly dissonant depiction of primordial chaos. This wide-ranging program explores the ways that feelings of inner disorientation can lead to the pursuit of new routes and ideas.
