Fantasy for twenty-two hands

Saturday, February 22 , 2020 - 7:30 PM

Église St Jax

We have to let you in on a secret… the string players have always been envious of the
chef d’oeuvres of the piano repertoire … that is not to say that there are not enough masterpieces that great composers have conceived for strings, but there is something so irresistible about certain piano works that we just had to borrow some… A quest for arrangements for strings followed and some real treasures were found. The transformation from piano to strings added something very precious to the beloved works. Never losing the essence of the original compositions, strings add different colours, feelings, atmosphere and at times meaning so that these transcriptions metamorphose the works into something new and unique. The beautiful St-Jax Church is the perfect intimate setting for this magical evening.
