Musica Viva presents: ZOFO
“ZOFO’s feisty performances surge with athletic precision, always mindful of how much joy there is in the music.”
Now it’s Australia’s turn to witness them perform against an enthralling background of international artworks, creating an imaginary tour of a modern gallery to intrigue and engage the ears and eyes.
Playing one piano with four hands – but a unified artistic mind – is about the most intimate form of chamber music there is. Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi are ZOFO; a ‘20-Finger Orchestra’ who for a decade now, have electrified audiences with their dazzling artistry and outside-the-box thematic programming for piano-four-hands.
They commissioned a ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ – seeking out composers from 14 countries and asking them to choose a piece of visual art from their own culture, and then write a short piece inspired by it. The result is ZOFOMOMA – an unforgettable multimedia concert experience; a celebration of marvellous pianism set against an enthralling background of international artworks, creating an imaginary tour of a brilliant modern gallery to intrigue and engage the ears and eyes.
