Influencers of Resonance

piano recitals 2022|2023

Monday 3 October 2022, 7:30 p.m.

NIKOL BÓKOVÁ

“As an ‘influencer of resonance’, I wish to create a single prismatic programme, a coherent world of colours, out of a myriad minute forms. In it, I will alternate classic compositions with works of my own, threaded with the occasional improvisation, when I will gladly invite inspiration from the enchanting atmosphere of the St Agnes Convent, the audience, the magnificent instrument, and the moment itself.”


Before the concert, be inspired by the joint meeting of Nikol Bóková and Kristina Barta at Fresh Music Talks in 2021

The largest European instrument maker and a traditional producer of master-class concert pianos with a distinctive European sound since 1853.

Influencers of Resonance, a series organised by C. Bechstein, is the spiritual successor to the two-year Saleem Ashkar Beethoven Residency, which saw all of Beethoven’s 32 masterful piano sonatas performed in eight concerts. Successful successor “influencers” since 2018 have included Tomáš Kačo, Beata Hlavenková, Jan Bartoš, Ivo Kahánek, Marek Kozák, Martin Kasík, Lukáš Klánský, Karel Košárek, Kryštof Marek, Miroslav Sekera, or Najponk. The concert series systematically provides an independent platform for leading figures of the Czech piano scene, presenting them in distinctive, style-defining recitals that fully express their present artistic views and preferences.

For more than a century and a half, C. Bechstein has been manufacturing masterpieces that are the embodiment of excellence in quality and refinement in sound and tone, ushering in the beauties of the great era of the piano into the present day. From the outset, C. Bechstein’s philosophy has been influenced by the likes of Hans von Bülow or Franz Liszt. The company continues in its great tradition of handcrafted production, complemented with cutting edge technology. Instruments of the C. Bechstein and Bechstein brands are made exclusively in Europe, in the company’s German factory in Seifhennersdorf, Saxony; upright and grand pianos of the W. Hoffmann brand are built by the subsidiary C. Bechstein Europe in one of the most modern European production facilities in Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic.Today, C. Bechstein pianos can be found in the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Paris Conservatoire, or the Berlin Philharmonic.
