ABOUT THE MODERN PLAYGROUND

The Modern Playground is a concert devised to showcase repertoire that depicts the humorous facets of some of the most important contemporary composers of our time. 

The first part is primarily a collection of piano miniatures, with the exception of Samarasa for violin solo. These 12 pieces illuminate each other by connecting onto each other's associative musical materials. The connections and contrasts reveal not only the virtuosity and colourful writing of the composers, but also their humour and playfulness.

The second part of the concert showcases the modern repertoire for solo violin and violin-piano duo. It highlights a new approach to composition and performance by using various extended techniques. The new harmonic language presents the violin in a completely new light, thus changing the preconception of the nature of the instrument and its limits.
