Rhythmic hypnosis and a naked Mussorgsky

Rhythmic hypnosis and a naked Mussorgsky

To call Seán Morgan-Rooney an adventurous musician is an understatement. The young Irish pianist not only plays the traditional repertoire, but also engages in silent film, dance and theater. Meanwhile, Seán Morgan-Rooney also composes himself, especially for the combination of piano and voice and piano and electronic music. From such a musician, you can expect an exciting solo recital. In the Hoornder Church on Texel, he will set the tone for the new year with a beautiful path from what is for many unknown to known. Yet even in the lesser known works, thanks to the rhythmic hypnosis of Ligeti and the polyphonic roller coaster of Shostakovich, recognition will be great. But the work of this concert is of course the original piano version of Mussorgsky's famous Pictures of an Exhibition. Naked, stripped of all orchestral splendor, that work undoubtedly makes the most impression. An overwhelming start to 2023.
