Richie Beirach & Sirius Quartet


The event is postponed.

 

Richie Beirach is no doubt one of the most energetic piano virtuosos in jazz history. He is one of the busiest composers of our time, a pioneer of creative classical music-based improvisation. The Sirius Quartet intensifies his world of ideas with the sound of their strings.

Organiser

Richie Beirach & Sirius Quartet

Pianist and composer Richie Beirach believes that it is necessary to completely internalize the works of the great composers of the past before sitting down at the piano to rediscover them, engage in a dialogue with them, and transform them in a very personal way. Working from this conviction for almost five decades now, Beirach has created an impressively large and dazzling repertoire that seamlessly connects art past and present. On the occasion of the Beethoven Anniversary Year, Beirach and the Sirius Quartet offer us a taste of their magnificent play with time, structure and space. The instrumentalists will play two sets, presenting works from European music history as well as their own original compositions, including a world premiere by Gregor Huebner and a Beethoven arrangement by Richie Beirach himself, in a form of mini-cycle. It will be an evening of familiar music presented in a fresh, enlightened and entertaining manner – moving beyond conventional preconceptions as only Richie Beirach can.
