TRANSITION by Tricia Dawn Williams (Malta) transforms the piano recital into an interdisciplinary performance featuring motion capture technology, video-art, electronic music and extended piano technique. The programme presents a portrait of the avant-garde piano that stretches almost one hundred years of repertoire. Each work breaks new ground as the composer navigates through uncharted waters to depict a new profile for the instrument.
