Music composer and piano performer Jiri Pazour, who is
best known for his solo "Evenings with piano
improvisations", brings a new concert program. In a unique
and unparalleled style, Jiri Pazour introduces famous works
of Czech and world music composers in new music
transformations. With humorous and congenial
introduction, the pianist will, for instance, play Smetana's
Vltava (Moldau) in various music styles, or he will create origin
transformations of the main theme of Piotr Ilyich
Tchaikovsky's concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor.
You will also hear original arrangements of works by Ludwig
van Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak, George Gershwin and
others. You will have the opportunity to compare what these compositions would have sounded like if they were written
by a Classical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or
American composer of the 20th century Leonard Bernstein.
With Jiri Pazour, you will experience a remarkable evening
of first-class piano performance, as well as an evening of
ferocious, entrancing, and inspiration-imbued
improvisations and music transformations.
As is typical for Jiri Pazour's concerts, in the second half of
the program you can choose the
meson which Jiri Pazour
will develop improvisations. This part of the concert is never
the same, every time new music emerges. You will have the
opportunity to follow metamorphoses of familiar melodies
and witness the birth of new music compositions.
