Misty Fest returns to Coimbra in its 2023 edition with Piano Para Piano, the show that brings together Rodrigo Leão and his daughter Rosa on stage in a dialogue between two acoustic pianos.
This will be a double concert with an artist to be announced soon. In other words, on the same night there will be two concerts available with just one ticket.
Rodrigo Leão is the first to say that he is not a pianist, but the truth is that the piano has appeared in his work as a complement to the synthesizers that he has already used many times to write memorable melodies and think of the enveloping arrangements that he created with the ensembles you created. Now, the notable Portuguese composer is preparing for a new adventure: Piano Para Piano is a project that was born after a commission from the Piano Festival in Vila Nova de Cerveira, a challenge that led him to compose two new pieces that are also the beginning of a new path.
“I find it interesting”, reveals Rodrigo, “that I, who have no training as a pianist, can establish a dialogue with someone who has studied and is seriously studying the instrument”. In that first moment at the Minho event, his interlocutor was Rosa, his daughter, who is 19 years old and will also be accompanying her father in this show. It will be interesting to hear these pieces as I hear them in my imagination. Imagination does not have the same limits as my hands”, explains Rodrigo. “It can go as far as creativity dictates.”
Piano Para Piano is therefore a journey into the wonderful unknown with the signature of one of the most celebrated Portuguese composers.
