 Jan Michiels Soloist


With the ‘Lost in Venice with Prometheus’ project, Belgian pianist Jan Michiels tells a story that follows the unshakeable logic of a dream. The result is a musical journey with, as the principal port of call, Venice, its architectural density serving as a metaphor for going deep into the plurality of history (of music). Our travelling companion is Prometheus, a character who, according to composer Luigi Nono and to the image of the city of 1,000 canals, never stopped seeking, finding, setting, going beyond and transgressing.

The piano version of Ludwig van Beethoven’s ballet The Creatures of Prometheus  forms the heart and main line of this ambitious project and is the starting point that leads us to Bach, Wagner (Feierlicher Marsch, Isoldens Liebestod ), Liszt (Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe, R.W. – Venezia ) Holliger (Partita ) and Nono (...sofferte onde serene... )

‘I invite you into the lion’s den, somewhere in Venice, the secret labyrinth that cannot be apprehended in its entirety except by getting lost in it.’ Jan Michiels

 

 

 

 "A set intertwining the legend of Prometheus and history of Venice makes such sense that it is surprising no one seems to have attempted it before... Those drawn to the Promethean concept in music, or who enjoys thematic programming and authoratitive pianism, will find much to absorb them here."
