Istituzione Universitaria dei Concerti, Roma

British pianist and composer Nicolas Hodges is performing for the first time in Rome. An active repertoire, that encompasses such composers as Beethoven, Berg, Brahms, Debussy, Schubert and Stravinsky reinforces pianist Nicolas Hodges’ special prowess in contemporary music. As Tempo magazine has written: “Hodges is a refreshing artist; he plays the classics as if they were written yesterday, and what was written yesterday as if it were already a classic.” Many composers have written works for him to perform, notably Elliott Carter (Dialogues for Piano and Orchestra, 2003), Salvatore Sciarrino, James Clarke and Michael Finnissy to name but a few.
