World Premiere of the new show “TeoTronico Vs. Prosseda” in Beijing Concert Hall
The new multimedia show “TeoTronico Vs. Prosseda” will be presented for the first time next May 31 at the Beijing Concert Hall. It includes a new repertoire of piano pieces by Beethoven (“Moonlight Sonata”, Bagatelle op. 126), Chopin (Nocturnes, Etudes), Liszt (Liebestraüm No. 3), Rachmaninoff (Italian Polka). The show is a full multimedia project, featuring several background videos, including live cameras on the 53 fingers of TeoTronico and on its new face, able to change expressions according to the mood of the music performed. A completely new graphic project has been conceived and realized for this show by Italian graphic designer Gaia Folli at Up & Down Production Studio.
The new script, written by Roberto Prosseda and Matteo Suzzi, is structured like a match in six rounds, similar to a tennis match set. The two pianists (the human and the robot) will challenge each other, playing the same pieces, sitting at their own piano.
The six rounds will be focused on specific matters: speed, dynamics, agogics, articulation, rhythmic energy, emotional expression. The audience will vote after each round, choosing the winner.
Many surprises will happen during the match, with an unexpected ending, that we cannot anticipate now!
