"Between the Stations“ is how the Austrian pianist David Six calls his new project. The solo artist presents compositions all written on the road.
The idea is simple: At every single recital, he presents one new piano piece that has been inspired by and written at the very same place: Music, written in hotel rooms or at train stations, on planes or simply on stage. Pieces that are named after their place of birth.
By the end of this year, David Six seeks to have drawn a kind of musical-geographical map. Places of this year's tour like Paris, Teheran, New Delhi, New York, Nairobi, Berlin, Vienna, London or Shanghai are part of David Six’ sonic form of cartography.
Inspired by traveling and longing for a new challenge, the idea of composing "Between The Stations“ was born. David Six also uses on-stage-composing-methods, often including spontaneous ideas of his audience. Piano grand master Misha Alperin commented admiringly: "David’s sense for integration and organic unity of composition and improvisations is simply incredible!“
Experience accumulated during his studies of Classical Music, Jazz & Improvisation and Classical Indian Music come in handy in this project.
