Abdel Rahman El Bacha

72 Preludes - part 3

keyboard
Sun 12 Sep 2021 -18.00
start 18.00
All prices include booking fees.

An epic journey through time, themes and keys in three unique programmes

Despite their differences, as far as pianist El Bacha is concerned, Bach, Chopin and Rachmaninov are all linked by their preludes: Bach was an example to Chopin, who inspired Rachmaninov. And all three wrote preludes in all 24 keys, each with its own colour and expression. In a grand triptych of concerts, El Bacha unites these three grandmasters in a criss-cross dialogue, a dialogue done full justice by Chris Maene's innovative straight-strung piano.

Each concert includes a unique mix of all three composers.
