Foyer Soiree: Daan Vandewalle
With The People United Will Never Be Defeated (1975) Frédéric Rzewski composed a masterpiece for piano.
He composed 36 variations on El pueblo unido jamás será vencido, the known protest song from Chili. On Foyer Soiree, you can here an interpretation of piano virtuoso Daan Vandewalle.
It is no exaggeration to say that The People United is as great a work of musical art as the Goldberg and Diabelli Variations. And it is no exaggeration to say that Vandewalle’s performance was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
