Pianist Peter de Jager is a force of nature whose musical mind would adorn the cultural life of any city on the planet, bar none.
His recitals are not just recitals; they are journeys into wild and wonderful terrain. Having conquered the peaks of Boulez, Ives and Alkan – simply unscalable for most pianists – de Jager now leads his audience into the miraculous world of Iannis Xenakis, composer, architect, engineer and polymath.
The five works de Jager has chosen offer not only proof of Xenakis’ bona fide claim to genius, but also a succinct history of new music from 1961 to 1984. Equally at home on piano and harpsichord, de Jager will shine a light on one of the most interesting composers of the recent era.
