Tuesday Matinees: MultiPiano

Tuesday, October 01, 2013  |  2:00pm


“The MultiPiano project brings together some of Israel`s most brilliant and promising pianists of today,” says Zubin Mehta, Music Director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. MultiPiano is a unique keyboard spectacle, presenting Israel’s future generation of virtuoso pianists in a celebration of pianos in ever-changing combinations – in one and two pianos, with four, six and eight hands. Its repertoire ranges from fully-fledged original masterworks to dazzling virtuoso arrangements and showpieces. Highlights include transcriptions of several masterpieces originally written for orchestra, including the Bach-Vivaldi Concerto for Four Keyboards in a minor and Poulenc’s whimsical Concerto for Two Pianos in d minor, influenced by the gamelan music he heard at the 1931 Exposition Coloniale de Paris. Featuring Tomer Lev, Berenika Glixman, Daniel Borovitzky and Nimrod Meiry-Haftel.
