Duo Fortin-Poirier, Piano Duo present Mémoires
From classical to tango and ragtime Mémoires is an eclectic répertoire of works for piano with four hands. Works like Adios Nonino, a tango written by Astor Piazzolla as a final farwell and Souvenirs by Samuel Barber, a six-movement suite of alluring dances. You will be seduced by the originality and the energy of the Serpent’s Kiss by William Bolcom, a rag from the suite Garden of Eden, that tells the story of Adam and Eve. You will rediscover the Vocalise by Sergei Rachmaninoff, in a completely breathtaking version of the choreography of the four hands. You will be introduced to a work by the young Canadian composer Vanessa Marcoux who wrote a piece especially for this concert. But most of all, you will be moved and delighted by the intensity of the piano artistry and the complicity between Amélie Fortin and Marie-Christine Poirier.
Mémoires is a mix of hard-driving rhythm and a sweet nostalgia. In a nutshell, a concert that you will not easily forget!
