On the 1st of April 2017 the finissage of the exhibition “Music paintings from the baroque to the present” of the Bottroper artist Brigitte Wiegmann took place. This exhibition has complimented the concerts in an extraordinary way during the concerts over the past few weeks, by following the maxim: seeing with your ears and listening with your eyes!
For this occasion the Canadian artist Luke Welch appeared for the first time and presented pieces by Scarlatti, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann and the rarely played Canadian composer Oskar Morawetz.
With great energy and youthful enthusiasm, he took on the pieces and presented the compositions in a whole new way! This was not always completely without mistakes, but the listeners immediately forgave those few, as the overall performance of the pianist really tapped the audience, which was finally confirmed with long-lasting applause (followed by a small encore).
A truly sound evening! Thanks to Luke Welch and to the wonderful audience!
Dear friends of music and art,
Unfortunately it is already time again and we have to say goodbye to Brigitte Wiegmann’s beautiful exhibition, entitled “Musical paintings from the Baroque to the Present”. Let yourself be enchanted for the last time in my rooms with these extraordinary paintings, which can be experienced with their sound-compositional qualities in the ubiquitous musical atmosphere of my studio! Maybe you can also find a painting that brings the joy of music to your own home…
In this context, I am especially pleased to present to you the great international pianist Luke Welch. Born in Canada, he studied in Canada and the Netherlands, and has traveled throughout the world extensively on his concert tours. Enjoy a spectacular piano concerto and a beautiful finale of this exhibition!
