Piano Showcase

Aesthesia and Anaesthesia

Tuesday 12 March
Recital Room   7.30pm
Admission Free but should be booked   Book a place

At a time of momentous change and incessant social media, should we retreat from reality or confront it? Students will be exploring contemporary ambient piano music, crossing boundaries between the minimalist and the experimental.

The soothing and numbing music of Ludovico Einaudi and Yiruma might be the narcotic we yearn for in anxious times. But is anodyne music the solution? Can composers like Cornelius Cardew awaken our senses and prompt us to see more clearly the pressing realities of the world around us?

This concert will include hits such as Nuvole Bianche and River flows in you, followed by a performance of the thought-provoking experimental work The Great Learning by Cornelius Cardew, which is based on the eponymous ancient Confucian text. 

Brian Eno’s Music for Airports will be played all day in the Foyer
