About the event


In the series of solo performance I will contrast “Musica Ricercata” of G. ligeti with the Schubert last sonata in B-Flat major, different styles of composing connected by the same inner idea of “researching” and “discovering”. The program aims to combine classical and modern music in the same concert, finding similarities and connections between two very different composers.

-Antonio Biancaniello


G. Ligeti - Musica Ricercata (1951-1953)


F. Schubert - Sonata no. 21 in B-Flat major D 960 (1828)

I. Molto moderato

II. Andante sostenuto

III. Scherzo: Allegro vivace con delicatezza – Trio

IV. Allegro ma non troppo – Presto

23 year old Italian pianist, Antonio Biancaniello plays with heightened sensitivity and emotional depth. He has performed as soloist with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra and in chamber music with musicians such as Olivier Patey, Daniel Rowland, Chiyan Wong, Omri Epstein and Nicholas Schwartz. After graduating from the “D. Cimarosa” Conservatory in Avellino, Italy his passion for new music and composition brought him to the Netherlands to research Karnatic rhythm at the Amsterdam Conservatory. He does his post graduate piano studies with Davidsbündler Academy professor Borys Fedorov.
