Like a hiker exploring a landscape, “Ear-Walking Woman” sets out on an expedition to the inner workings of the piano. Sensitivity for sound variants and differentiation lead the pianist towards the rich sounds experienced in the stillness. The program also includes “completely notated” works that require the audience to adopt a “different way of listening”: for example, the detuning and microintervallic internal differentiation of the piano’s sound, changing rhythm to pitch, deliberate inexpressiveness, or a reinterpretation of a Mahler theme conceived as a twelve-tone row by Schönberg’s pupil Dika Newlin.
