Eve Egoyan “Folklore”
We’re thrilled to bring Eve Egoyan, one of Canada’s most warmly revered performers, to Montreal audiences. Her concert explores the notion of musical layers from every angle: weaving three voices in waves of shifting density; singing lines through rich harmonies; stacking simultaneous musical gestures; soulful melodies arising out of stillness and complexity.
Eve Egoyan has firmly established herself as an internationally recognized interpreter of contemporary piano concert music. She has won numerous awards and consistently receives amazing accolades for her performances and recordings. Renowned composers such as James Tenney, Ann Southam, and Michael Finnissy, among others have composed works for her repertoire. In a rare Montreal appearance, Eve will share four works with Innovations en concert‘s audience members:
James Tenney : To Weave (a meditation) (2003)
Piers Hellawell : Piani, Latebre (2010)
Linda C. Smith – Nocturnes and Chorales* (2014)
Michael Finnissy – Folklore II (1993-1994)
* Montreal premiere
