The Hungarian branch of the international Piano Day first created by Nils Frahm in 2015 will, as last year, be spread across a whole day at Müpa Budapest in 2020 and the series of events will once again close in the Festival Theater. This time, one German and one Italian production will be heard for the first time in Hungary. CEEYS is a couple of German brothers who form a piano-cello duo spiced up by vintage synthesizers. The pianist Luca D'Alberto will give a chamber concert with the atmosphere of film music in the company of a violinist and a cellist.
The brothers who make up CEEYS grew up in East Berlin in the communist era. Pianist Daniel Selke and cellist Sebastian Selke have played together since childhood, but lately have been collaborating with such stars of modern classical pop music as Ólafur Arnalds and Peter Broderick. In addition to the two main musical components, their music is complemented by vintage instruments from East Germany to produce compositions with a certain socialist atmosphere. Of course, not in a retro sense, their ...most recent 2019 album, HIDDENSEE, was inspired by the East Berlin buildings of their childhood. They will be followed by the classically trained Luca D'Alberto in concert. He has experimented with a lot of different music, his work as a film scorer is considerable, while he is no stranger to contemporary electronica. All this can be heard in his modern classical albums (Endless - 2017, Exile - 2018), in which he performs all the instruments on his cinematic chamber music. In addition, electronic music producers reworked his tracks on the Endless Rework remix record. Live in concert, he is accompanied by a violinist and a cellist, and his latest work is increasingly dominated by electro-acoustic approach.
