This concert includes a short presentation about each piece and sometimes a small interaction with some listeners.
This program is built on the contrast of two eras, two philosophies,
but united by the scale of deep musical thought, opening up a space of harmonies, contradictions and discoveries
From the early age Sofia was very much into discovering how the context may affect the perception of a musical work.
In particular, playing with contrasts of styles and moods during a concert, it can quite significantly change the impression of a particular musical piece. Bach, sounding at the beginning of the concert, will be perceived eight differently than Bach, sounding after a whole bunch of dissonances by Prokofiev and passionate Scriabin.
J.S. Bach, Partita in D major, BWV 828S.
Prokofiev, Sarcasms, op.17
A.Scriabin, Preludes op.11
