Series: City Summer Sounds Music Festival
Pianist and recent graduate Ben Smith explores works in which musical sound is imagined or conceptualized as a quasi-image, object, or symbol. Including works by Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Finnissy and Jürg Frey, the programme traverses the extremes of pianistic expression and virtuosity.
