Animal Music
A Zoological Piano Recital with Tobias Koch

Thursday, 30 June 2016, 20:00

Accompanying the theoretical discussion, Animal Mimesis offers an example of the relationship between art and the animal world. The pianist, Tobias Koch, will lead you through a musical zoo populated by chickens, dancing bears, fishes, wolves, prophetic birds: covering three centuries of Western music, from Jean Philippe Rameau up to Olivier Messiaen. The concert will give a vivid cross section of the different compositional reactions to acoustic, physical, and symbolical stirrings provided by the animal world.
