Music and dance are two of the oldest art forms in human history, and are almost inseparable: not only does dance live from music, but dance forms are also to be found in musical works, and even seemingly unrelated pieces often have a dance rhythm pulsing in the background. Dance will be the next topic of the Egri & Pertis Piano Duo's concert series, Crosstalks, which explores the interplay of the different art forms. The concert features a wide range of dance-inspired compositions to illustrate the intertwining of the two arts, from Bach to Weber, Ravel and Gershwin. Like piano playing, dance conveys emotions and drama without words, and rhythm is a defining element of both arts. But what are the most striking differences? The duo will ask one of the most prominent figures in the dance world about these differences.

The concert is supported by OTP Bank.
