Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich
November 1, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Consummate French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard and brilliant Yugoslav-born pianist Tamara Stefanovich—partners off-stage as well as on—return with a program of exquisite contemporary works for one and two pianos. British iconoclast Harrison Birtwistle contributes a new work composed especially for the duo, co-commissioned by Cal Performances. Messiaen’s sparkling and sensual Visions de l’Amen was written as a vehicle for the composer himself along with his muse and future wife, the pianist Yvonne Loriod (who would later become Aimard’s teacher). “Both pianists bring impeccable precision and clarity to Messiaen…quite simply impossible to imagine it better done” (The Guardian, London).
