Internationally acclaimed solo pianists Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi are ZOFO, a ‘20-finger orchestra’ playing one piano with four hands. Since joining forces as a professional duo in 2009, they have electrified audiences from New York City’s Carnegie Hall to Tokyo with their dazzling artistry. Together they blaze a bold new path for four-hands groups by focusing on a 20th and 21st century repertoire and by commissioning new works from noted composers each year.
ZOFOMoMA, the dynamic duo's new multimedia commissioning project is a ground-breaking and visually exciting project, where composers from around the world have been asked to choose a piece of visual art from their own culture, and then write a short piece inspired by it. Against an ever-changing backdrop of contemporary paintings, 15 new ZOFO-commissioned duet compositions are revealed throughout the 75-minute continuous performance.
The result on stage is an unforgettable multimedia concert experience; a celebration of dynamic pianism set against an enthralling background of international artworks, creating an aurally and visually stunning tour through a virtual museum of modern art, guaranteed to intrigue the ears and engage the eyes.
