Walter Hus [BE]
In Supersonic Flora, Walter Hus is returning to a number of pivotal pieces from his career and adapting them into brand-new compositions for solo piano. The pieces range from beautiful, radical, and minimalist compositions from the 1980s to more melodious works from the 1990s and a recent jazzy piece that he composed in memory of a friend who died. All of this music was originally composed for ensembles, from string quartets to orchestras. They were never intended to be played by ten fingers on one piano. Hus thus did not opt for simple transcriptions, but allowed himself the freedom to reinterpret his original intentions. These works have been refined and simplified, but at the same time also enriched with all his experiences over the years since they were first created.
• Seeing and hearing Walter Hus play the piano is an unforgettable experience, as his memorable concerts at the Kaaistudios between 2000 and 2005 demonstrated. This time, his piano will stand on the main stage of Kaaitheater itself. The concert is also the presentation of his new eponymous CD.
