Teaser piano recital “ Games & Mirrors” with Louise Akili


“Games and Mirrors” invites us to a garden of sounds and harmonies where landscapes, lights and depths of exceptional musical pieces chosen from the greatest masterpieces of the piano repertoire are intertwined.

In a multi-coloured program, pianist Louise Akili, an artist of international dimension, retraces, in a virtuoso and sensitive interpretation, the subtle and intense link woven by the genius of the great composers who have offered us these universal and timeless masterpieces.

From the elusive nocturnes whose notes slip away in a fluidity that nothing hinders to the continuous and melted flows of arpeggios with stunning intensities, it is just as many variations and contrasts that give a width to the space, sound and timbre of the instrument as to the images that notes and melodies inspire us…
