An Irish premiere
Louth Contemporary Music Society in association with Drogheda Arts Festival
Taga Kigawa, piano
Russell Greenberg, percussion
Described by Boston.com as “a work of ecstatic, hazy beauty” Four Thousand Holes, stems from the final piano chord in the Beatles’ A Day in the Life from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The performance will be given by New York-based pianist Taka Kigawa and percussionist Russell Greenberg.
Paul Adler of Westchester Magazine wrote “When Taka Kigawa performs, people take note”. Called a “phenomenon” by The New York Times, Kigawa is one of the most celebrated pianists ever to come out of Japan. He will also perform Karen Tanaka’s Techno Etudes and her former teacher Tristian Murail’s sublime Territories de l’oublie.
