Her playing of classical compositions has been described as “outstandingly inventive.” Canadian Sarah Hagen’s inventiveness can be heard in her sensitive, emotive piano playing and in the artistic projects she has created. Sarah Hagen has collaborated with both classical musicians and musicians from other fields, for instance the Danish jazz pianist Søren Bebe.
With photographers, dancers and spoken words-performers, she has created new experiences, binding classical compositions to other forms of creative expression. Her innovative approach to classical music has brought her to concert halls throughout North America and Europe, and her travels have inspired new projects.
At Tønder Festival you will hear and see a woman with a powerful creative urge, for example when she tells about 19th century female composers and interprets their music. Solo performance and her only Danish festival concert in 2022.
