“Able to pull off any number of technical high-wire acts… [van Houdt has] a remarkable evenness of tone and touch.” — Toronto Star

Frequently chosen by experimental composers to premiere works around the world, Reinier van Houdt is a pianist with astonishing technique who developed an early fascination for matters that escape traditional notation: physicality, space, memory, noise, environment and the points where interpretation touches improvisation. For this concert, van Houdt performs several pieces, including the world premiere of pioneering music legend Walter Marchetti’s Per La Mano Sinistra for umbrella and piano; Chimanzzi by Jerry Hunt, one of the most original composers of the last century; and Luc Ferrari’s sound journal 36 Enfilades for piano and magnétophone, in which the composer’s reluctance to process natural sounds into unrecognizability for musique concrète allows the mental associations provoked by the sounds to create narrative drama.
