Audience Vote to Decide Pianist’s Chopin Concert Repertoire
The concert, taking place on April 29th at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, will see Sergio Tiempo play a programme of works by Brahms, Beethoven and many more, but there’s an unconfirmed slot where six individual Chopin Etudes will be performed.
Tiempo has set up a Soundcloud page where listeners and audience members can ‘Like’ each individual Etude (there’s a shortlist of 12). The six Etudes with the most ‘Likes’ will be performed by Tiempo on the night.
Tiempo comments on his Soundcloud page: “I ask you to help me choose 6 out of these 12 études to include in the program. Whichever six get the most votes, those are the ones I will play!”
“Rather than having you choose from a silent list of Opus and study numbers or from someone else’s recording of them, I decided to offer you live performances from a recital I gave in China.”
The rest of the concert is also very specifically programmed, with each different piece chosen by Tiempo to represent a different family member.
