Wed, Feb 1 Pianist Ramon van Engelenhoven plays Prokofiev and a double premiere
Contemporary, Chamber Music
The young pianist Ramon van Engelenhoven presents not one, but two premieres in this concert. The Dutch premiere of Sanzui by Masashi Hamauzu, an impression of Japan, kicks off this recital, followed by further impressionist works by Debussy and Liszt. After intermission Van Engelenhoven will perform Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 8, perhaps his richest piano work. He is no stranger to the composer, with NRC praising a recent performance: 'this music could easily be hammered away, yet Van Engelenhoven’s dream-like playing proves there are stronger ways one can be moved.' The monumental sonata is preceded by the world premiere of Prelude for piano by Iranian composer Ramin Amin Tafreshi.
