Two new confirmations for Misty Fest with two highly anticipated returns to our country. After having filled the Capitol last Friday, German Christian Löffler returns to our country, this time accompanied by a string ensemble, to present his new show Parallels.
Joep Beving, who made his debut last year at Misty Fest with several sold out concerts, brings with him his new work Hermetism, a return to his solo piano origins. This is a double concert, in which the same ticket serves to attend both shows.
Christian Löffler is accompanied by a string quartet to present Parallels: Shellac Reworks, his latest work published by the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon, in which he reinterprets some of the world’s greatest classical composers in their own soundscapes; for example, J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Wagner, Smetana and Bizet.
In this Parellels tour, past and present collide on stage through the live mixing of a string quartet with Löffler’s own electronic productions. The music is also accompanied by visuals and light design made especially for the tour, in a mesmerizing and immersive audiovisual experience.
Joep Beving returns to his original solo piano recording with Hermetism, a new tour based on the Dutch composer and pianist’s fourth album for Deutsche Grammophon. For this work, the composer was inspired by Hermetism, a spiritual philosophy that stems from ancient writings attributed to the legendary Greek author Hermes Trismegistus.
Beving, winner of an Edison Award, is one of the most listened-to pianists in the world, and a champion in the streaming universe; his piece “Sleeping Lotus” alone has more than 40 million plays on Spotify. Hermetism will serve as the basis for a concert of absolute wonder, with passage through more relevant moments of his previous work equally assured. An absolutely unmissable and certainly historic performance.
