Itay Dvori’s recitals are musical adventures. As a composer and interpreter of music, he is interested in the tension between the three spheres of improvisation, composition and interpretation.
In this connection, the composition may build on the preceding improvisation or, conversely, the composition may give rise to a kind of “improvisational interpretation”, whereby a carefully constructed composition is always played differently – even live on stage –, and indeed also with spontaneously modified tones. This is one of the many different routes Itay Dvori takes towards the realisation of his musical ideal: in the moment of the performance, a good interpretation of a composition should seem as spontaneous as an improvisation; a good improvisation, on the other hand, should seem like a well-structured composition.
In his solo recitals, Itay Dvori presents both his own pieces and improvisations and compositions by classical and contemporary composers. Often, there are sources of inspiration behind the pieces, such as texts or images. An overall context – which may also be an extra-musical context – always links together the individual pieces of a programme to form a greater whole.
