Pianist David Greilsammer

Following his virtual appearance in the 2020/21 season presenting his inventive Scarlatti:Cage project, pianist David Greilsammer returns to the Phillips for another probing concert experience that explores crosscurrents and dialogues between music radically separated by the centuries. Greilsammer’s 70-minute Labyrinth program is presented in seven chapters, each containing aphoristic short pieces and probing musical juxtapositions. Greilsammer structures his Labyrinth with a deeply personal sense of journey and discovery. Music by Leoš Janáček is paired with Jean Baptite Lully, Ludwig van Beethoven with George Crumb, György Ligeti with J.S Bach, Erik Satie with C.P.E Bach, contemporary composer Ofer Pelz with Marin Marais, and ending with the music of Alexander Scriabin and Jean-Féry Rebel. Through the conscious displacement of time and style, Greilsammer hints at as many clues as he does diversions in this maze-like musical architecture.

This event will be broadcast live from the Music Room on Sunday, February 6 at 4 PM. To reserve a ticket, follow the link above to register.
