Works for piano and electronics

Cologne – Paris – Vienna – Würzburg: a top-class concert for experimental ears and music from “Endless Space” to “Branenwelten” and a “Toccata” in “Heiteren Wellen …” after Luigi Nono, the famous neutoner of classical modernism!
What an inspiring variety! The concert will be performed as a small tour in Würzburg, Bayreuth and Munich on three consecutive days and opens up completely new aspects for piano sound lovers.

“Spiritus Rector” and organiser is the Cologne composer Robert HP Platz, who will also moderate the evening. He teaches composition at the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg and has acquired a Steingraeber transducer grand piano there. His student Cong Wei and his pupil Aydin Pfeiffer will also contribute works for the transducer grand.

At the grand piano, the pianist Clara Murnig from the MusikUni Vienna is responsible for the very classical piano acoustics.
Coming from Paris, Augustin Muller operates the electronics, which directly control the grand piano in the wooden soundboard and achieve incredible sound effects on a second level.

Clara Murnig (photo) is a pianist in the fields of contemporary music, chamber music and song accompaniment and a lecturer at the Ludwig van Beethoven Institute of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. She was a scholarship holder of the Royal College of Music and performs throughout Europe, e.g. in the Edvard Elgar Room of the Royal Albert Hall (UK), at Cremona Musica 2017 (IT), at the Schönberg Center Vienna. In 2012 she received the STARTStipendium of the then Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture in the field of music and performing arts.
