the first European festival on creativity

2017 Program

Event #38

Michael Nyman, Anna Tifu

Concert for piano and violin

Artistic curiosity is what drives Michael Nyman to constantly experiment with new collaborations. His encounter with young violinist Anna Tifu – with whom he shares a natural and immediate musical sensitivity – led to a concert performed in March to collect funds to rebuild schools in the areas of the Marche region affected by recent earthquakes. A show for which Michael Nyman rewrote some of his unreleased compositions resulting in the creation of an actual “concert for piano and violin”, which the two artists will perform in world premiere in Sarzana for the public of Festival della Mente.
