The program was inspired by night images and scenes of the countryside, as a subjective story of someone who went on a journey of night contemplation and ended up meeting interesting people in the countryside on the following day.
I will have the honour of doing the Brazilian premiere of Efthymios Chatzigiannis‘ piece ‘Auditory Rainbows’, for piano and resonating glasses.
I hope to see you there to join me in this ‘journey’!
