Event Details

ANTONÍN REJCHA

LʼArt de Varier ou 57 Variations pour le piano-forte (The Art of Variation or 57 Variations for Piano) op. 57

Ivan Ilić piano

 

Serbian-American pianist, artist and actor

a graduate mathematician, whose recordings reap the applause of music critics

Rejcha’s variations as a show of genres and techniques requiring masterful mastery of the instrument

he work of an author who was a teacher of Berlioz, Liszt or Franck and a close friend of Beethoven

 

Antonín Rejcha’s piano cycle, L’Art de varier, Op. 57, is a touchstone for performers and also reveals the composer’s inventive work with the variation form. Indeed, keyboard works constitute a very important and extensive part of Rejcha’s compositional legacy (they would fill about 14 CDs), though Rejcha was never a piano virtuoso.

For his merits, Rejcha was elected a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts. The first native of Bohemia to be so honoured, he was the most successful of his musical compatriots in France, where he died.

 

In collaboration with Bonjour Brno festival.

Under the auspices of H. E. Alexis Dutertre, Ambassador of France to the Czech Rebulic.
