The concert series Project Mozart by Piano Duo Viitala & Holmström is a rare opportunity to hear the complete works for piano four hands by W. A. Mozart.
The program of the second concert will also include George Crumb’s Celestial Mechanics (Makrokosmos IV).

The duo describes their program as follows: ”To our minds these works by Mozart and Crumb are the absolute best chamber music imaginable. The pianistic challenges, deep emotions, beautiful architecture, sensitivity and pure joy make these masterpieces into something quite unique. It gives us great pleasure to perform these musical gems.”

In this second concert the Mozart set consists of the the large-scale Sonata in F major, an Andante with Variations in G major and the astonishing Ein Orgelstück für eine Uhr, K. 608. To honour the 90th birthday of George Crumb his masterpiece for piano four hands, Celestial Mechanics aka Makrokosmos lV, will also be performed. A renowned champion of extended playing techniques Crumb presents in this piece groundbreaking and imaginative soundscapes.

The concert series will be concluded in the spring 2020 with a concert presenting Mozart’s complete output for two keyboards.
