Welcome to the 21th Century
Moreno Gistain Piano Duo
One Piano Four Hands
A multitude of artistic trends began to live during the early years of the twentieth century The spectrum of possibilities between continuity with the above and the radical break is huge. "Welcome to the Twentieth Century" project presents major works of the symphonic repertoire by renowned composers such as Gershwin, Ravel or Stravinsky.
All of the works have some relationship with popular music, although it´s approached from different points of view.
Gershwin Uses the popular element as the essence of language itself, Ravel uses it masterfully as an exotic and evocative pretext and Stravinsky uses cleverly it as an springboard to show a conception of sound and musical language radically innovative.
"Welcome to the Twentieth Century" project shows one of the possible pathways to discover the early decades of last century. The program is made up entirely of piano duo transcriptions of music works belonging to the orchestral repertoire, some of these transcriptions are virtually unheard in the concert halls in this version for piano duet.
