Chopin and the Dancing Ribbons
JUNE 4th, 2022 | Saturday at 7:30 PM
MacEwan Conservatory, 10050 MacDonald Drive, Edmonton
In honour of the 10-year anniversary since the inaugural concert of Mazurka Music and Art, renowned pianists Zuzana Simurdova and Mikolaj Warszynski, will perform a recital dedicated to the works of Frédéric Chopin in the Muttart Hall of the MacEwan Conservatory in Edmonton.
In addition to the music, an art installation by artists Liz Ingram (recently awarded the Order of Canada) and Bernd Hildebrandt, will also be presented on stage during the performance. The musical program for this recital will consist of the four Chopin Ballades, performed by Zuzana Simurdova, and Chopin Scherzos & Polonaises, performed by Mikolaj Warszynski. The art installation will consist of a series of digitally printed habotai silk banners, which relate in both imagery and movement to the music and will be set up on the stage around the pianos. A special guest appearance by dancer, Marynia Fekecz-Mangan, will serve to animate the art installation within the musical framework.
The idea to present a classical piano recital in collaboration with a visual artistic component, offers a new dimension to the traditional concert experience, engaging the listener with a visual counterpart to the music. The idea to present a full Chopin recital between two musicians is something which generates much excitement among the audience; Chopin remains an iconic composer who is synonymous with the piano, and the opportunity to present masterworks from Chopin’s corpus - the Ballades, Scherzos & Polonaises - in one concert presentation is a rare occurrence and will be of special interest for musical connoisseurs.
