Eve Egoyan: SOLO FOR DUET

Eve Egoyan is an artist whose medium is the piano. Her intuitive musicality, insightful attention to detail, and pianistic virtuosity have made her one of the world’s most sought-after interpreters of contemporary music. Her musical interests span extremely contrasting sensibilities: from Alvin Curran’s five-hour long Inner Cities to Erik Satie’s miniatures; from minimalist works by Ann Southam to maximalist new complexity works by Michael Finnissy; from the rigorous interpretation of a score to free improvisation. Eve’s exploratory nature and restless curiosity have led to numerous collaborations with other artists from a variety of disciplines including technologies in relation to the piano. She has most recently been commissioning works for music and image. Her twelfth solo disc will be released in 2018.
Admission is free / by donation. Doors open at 7:00.
