19:30 – 19:50 TivoliVredenburg – Cloud Nine
Canadian music pioneer Stefan Maier (Gaudeamus Award 2019 nominee) is always looking for the breaking point: the point at which sound breaks itself away from human influence and begins to lead its own life. A difficult task, therefore, for many musicians who have been taught the opposite – i.e. to be in complete control. But if anyone is open to such a challenge, it is pianist Vicky Chow. This full-time member of the Bang On A Can All-Stars was called ‘one of our era’s most brilliant pianists’ by Pitchfork magazine. In this concert she performs brand-new work which Maier developed with her in the weeks leading up to the festival.
