The Swiss pianist Cédric Pescia studied with big names like Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Daniel Barenboim and Christian Zacharias. In 2002, he was the winner of the Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition. In this recital, he confronts Beethoven and Cage with each other, two composers who each in their own way explored the technical limits of the piano. It was not for nothing that Thomas Mann described Beethoven's revolutionary Opus 111 as a 'farewell to the sonata'. Cage, on the other hand, experimented with prepared pianos and with silence.
