Neue Musik in St.Ruprecht
St.Ruprechtskirche, Vienna, Austria – Sunday April 24th 2022 – 20.00
Antonietta Loffredo presents selected works from her large repertoire only for toy piano in a full-length concert. An instrument so small, intimate and fascinating – as if made for the fine acoustics of the Ruprechtskirche, the oldest church in Vienna.
On the program: Oceans of Time (2018)
The Guitar in Contemporary chamber music
The 3rd edition of the international interdisciplinary conference The 21st Century Guitar will be hosted in-person and virtually in collaboration with the International Guitar Research Centre (IGRC, University of Surrey).
