Late night concert with Matan Porat @ New Ross Piano Festival 2019

Saturday, 28 September 2019, 10.00pm

“Lux” is a 50 minute recital without intermission around the theme of light. Ten pieces chosen among a repertoire spanning twelve centuries accompany the course of a day, from dawn to nightfall. Each piece corresponds to a time of day, with its own particular light.

“Pianist Matan Porat invites us on a musical journey from morning until the dead of night. His program, selected as much for its variety as for the smooth tonal transitions between each piece, is a work of art in itself. Gregorian chant opens and closes the day, while Schumann gently moves us into light with his introspective but radiant “Gesänge der Frühe”. Music by Beethoven, Debussy, Scriabin, Liszt, Thomas Adès- plus Bartók’s unnerving portrait of nighttime (“The Night’s Music”) and an exciting world premiere recording of Matthias Pintscher’s “Whirling tissue of light”- provides fascinating individual interpretations of different times of day. Each is played with clarity, sensitivity, and a beautiful sense of narrative” (iTunes official selection)
