Imagination, Music & the Brain

For this recital, pianist and PhD student Katia Veekmans collaborates with professor Erik Scherder and visual artist Charlie Meijering. Together, they demonstrate how - neurologically speaking - music stems from imagination in the brain. It is also the first, artistic part of Katia's public PhD defence for the Doctorate in the Arts "Perceptie van orkestklankkleur toegepast op het pianorepertoire - een symbiose van idee en verklankking" (the final defence will take place on 27th January at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels).

The programme consists of:
Schubert - Sonate in a, D 784
Liszt - Eerste Mephistowals 'Der Tanz in der Dorfschenke'
Bartók - Drie burlesques, op. 8c
Prokofjev - Zesde sonate in A, op. 82

Tickets are available on the website of Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
