Live Music: Andreas Klein

Andreas Klein

I’m glad we caught this opportunity. Andreas Klein is certainly the highest caliber pianist I’ve seen in a venue as small as CSU’s Edna Rizley Griffin concert hall. His theme for the night was ‘visions’ – short, intense, visually inspired pieces. I was in awe of most them. The Prokofiev series was the only one he used sheet music for, to prevent him from making a fool of himself he announced, then proceeded to play a dizzying series of pieces that I can’t believe could possibly be written down, much less sight-read. The program:

Frederic Chopin – Baracarole
Calude Debussy – Le fille aux cheveux de lin & La cathedrale engloutie
Sergei Prokofiev – Vision Fugitives, opus 22
Modest Mussorgsky – Pictures at an Exhibition
