Rhythmic hypnosis with Seán Morgan-Rooney

Rhythmic hypnosis with Seán Morgan-Rooney
17/02 @ 20:00 Schagen - Schagen Castle

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. At the Schagen Castle, he will set the tone for the new year with a beautiful path from unfamiliar to familiar to many. Yet even in the lesser known works, thanks to the rhythmic hypnosis of Ligeti, the piano sonata of Mozart 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. Overwhelming!
