In an eclectic programme of repertoire for four hands, festival directors Samantha Ward and Maciej Raginia combine famous works by Fauré and Brahms with new piano transcriptions of some of the most iconic compositions by the Argentine tango composer and bandoneon player Astor Piazzolla. Opening with a suite of six short pieces, which Fauré wrote for Hélène Bardac (the title Dolly), daughter of the French singer Emma Bardac who was a mutual love interest of both Debussy and Fauré, Samantha and Maciej take the listeners on the journey through the composer’s whimsical titles behind which lies a vivid world of childhood memories. Brahms’s set of Sixteen Waltzes Op. 39 follows next, originally written for piano duet in Vienna in 1865 and intended as the composer’s tribute to the ballroom dance of waltz, particularly fashionable in the capital of the Austrian Empire from the 1780s. Whilst implementing a simple binary form, each piece within the cycle offers a unique depiction of the waltz thanks to the intricate use of keys, contrasting tempi and textures. The concert is brought to a close with a selection of three piano transcriptions from Astor Piazzolla’s oeuvre. By merging elements of jazz, dissonance, extended harmonies and improvisation with the Baroque passacaglia technique, the composer creates an extraordinary fusion of tango.

リサイタルについて

4手レパートリーの折衷的なプログラム。フェスティバルのディレクターであるサマンサ・ウォードとマチェック・ラギニアはフォーレとブラームスの有名な作品を、アルゼンチン・タンゴの作曲家でありバンドネオン奏者でもあるアストル・ピアソラの最も象徴的な作品を新しくピアノ編曲したものと組み合わせて演奏する。まずは、ドビュッシーとフォーレが共に好意を寄せていたフランス人歌手エンマ・バルダックの娘、エレーヌ・バルダックのためにフォーレが書いた6つの組曲(『ドリー』)で始まる。サマンサとマチェックは、作曲家の気まぐれなタイトルの背景にある、子供時代を思い出させるかのような鮮やかな世界にいざなってくれる。ブラームスのワルツ集作16は、もともと1865年にウィーンでピアノ連弾用として書かれ、特に1780年代にオーストリア帝国で流行した社交ダンス用のワルツを意識している。シンプルな2部形式で、テンポとテクスチャーを対比させながら、それぞれの作品が複雑な調性を駆使し、ワルツ独特の描写を聴かせてくれる。最後は、アストル・ピアソラの作品の中から3曲のピアノ編曲で締めくくられる。ピアソラは、ジャズ、不協和音、複雑なハーモニーや即興演奏の要素をバロックのパッサカリアと融合させることで、タンゴを誰も想像のつかなかった音楽へと昇華させた。
