The Érard Grand Piano Series: Klará Würtz plays Bach, Mozart and Schubert

Event details

About the Érard Grand Piano Series

TenClub invites master pianists who specialise in historical pianos to curate their own program for the Érard Grand Piano Series and to perform their music of choice in the unique and intimate atmosphere of our fin-de-siècle salon at Nes 120. Internationally acclaimed pianists such as Artem Belogurov, Vivianne Cheng and Ksenia Kouzmenko have performed during the first season, which started in the fall of 2022 and ended last June. We are very excited to present a brand new season with rarely or never before heard programs by Henry Kelder, Martin Oei, Daria van den Bercken, Nicolas van Poucke, Klára Würtz, Evelina Vorontsova and Bart van Oort, all of whom have created a program specifically for TenClub’s very own 1892 Érard Grand piano. 

TenClub wouldn’t be TenClub if we wouldn’t always start with a poetic introduction to the program. 

About Klára Würtz’ performance at TenClub

Klára Würtz’s contribution to TenClub’s Érard series features a carefully curated selection of works by some of the greatest composers of the early 19th century: Bach, Mozart and Schubert.

“What unites these three composers,” says Würtz, is that they tell you the unspeakable with notes. The music is their language.” Bach, Mozart and Schubert know how to sing on an instrument, they literally put a voice to the hammers on a piano and that is something truly incredible…”

About Klára Würtz

Hailed by critic Robert Cummings as one of “the more important pianists to have emerged from the latter decades of the 20th Century,” Klára Würtz’s (1965) performances are marked by her “light but strong touch, supple but sensitive technique and rare ability to balance the graceful and the soulful,” (James Leonard for All Music). Würtz recorded over forty albums, containing work from composers such as Mozart, Bartók, Kodály, Janácek, Liszt, Chopin and Debussy. Her recording of the complete Mozart piano sonatas was highly praised by Harris Goldsmith in International Record Review: “Sensational! Würtz pianistic finesse, (…) and above all her tendency to let the music speak for itself, represent a Mozart tradition at its best.” 

The program

Bach Partita nr 1. in B-Flat Major BWV 825 (1726)
Mozart Sonata in C minor in KV 457 (1784)
Schubert Sonata in B-Flat major D960(1828)

About the Érard

The sound of this 1892 Érard at TenClub, restored with great precision and love, is original and unparalleled. The music as Henry Kelder will play it on the Érard is as the composers once intended it to be played. After all, not only were the ‘timeless’ pieces created on the instrument, but all the greats of classical music actually also played on an Érard grand piano: Chopin, Mendelssohn, Verdi, Liszt, Ravel, Fauré, Wagner, Debussy and Diepenbrock, to name but a few.
