Daan Vandewalle

Tom Johnson, Frederic Rzewski

New works by two monumental American composers, right here in Leuven! Tom Johnson reconciles an almost Satie-esque transparency with systematic mathe- matical patterns. Contrasted with this intellectual playfulness is the impassioned music of Frederic Rzewski, in a (posthumous) world premiere. And what pianist is better placed to champion these two eminent American composers than Daan Vandewalle?

Daan Vandewalle

Daan Vandewalle

Pianist Daan Vandewalle enjoys an international reputation as new music specialist, with a strong focus on 20th and 21st century American piano music. His programs are often highly unusual both on a technical and intellectual level, often combining the classical repertoire with premieres of new works written especially for him.


Tom Johnson

Tom Johnson

As a minimalist composer, Tom Johnson (°1939, USA) works with very limited material, but sets himself apart through his use of mathematical procedures, which is one of the defining traits of his work. The greater part of his training took place with Morton Feldman. John Cage, who he met later on, would also have a decisive influence in his career as a composer.

Frederic Rzewski

Frederic Rzewski

American composer and pianist Frederic Rzewski (1938-2021) had a career spanning more than 60 years, during which he explored diverse musical genres and often pushed boundaries: from orchestral and vocal music to chamber music and a large number of piano works that he often performed himself. He deliberately made his work accessible in order to keep his music, which almost always had political, left-wing overtones, understandable to the working class.
