Xavi Torres – A Kind Of Beethoven
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - LantarenVenster
A journey through some of Beethoven’s best-known sonatas. It’s spontaneous and it’s fresh. Spanish pianist Xavi Torres explores all possibilities with sound, improvisation, rhythms and new textures. The admiration of Beethoven’s work, the joy and all musical baggage of the three musicians come together in ‘A Kind of Beethoven’.
‘A Kind of Beethoven’ started as a commission by L’Auditori de Barcelona. This great concert hall asked Xavi Torres to revisit Beethoven his piano sonatas in a new format. To enrich this project, Xavi asked Joan Terol (drums) to join. They have played together for over 10 years already. Xavi also added virtuoso Joris Roelofs (bass clarinet) to join the group.
