Pedja Mužijević is propelled by contrasts. When he constructs a concert program, he often spans centuries between pieces, seeking to let the barriers of time and style fall away, trusting that new ways of hearing will emerge from the resulting clash. The Bosnian-born pianist has done this on record on his album Sonatas and Other Interludes, which juxtaposes John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano with music by Scarlatti, Liszt, and Schumann, and in various concerts around the world. But his “Haydn Dialogues” project may be his most thoroughgoing attempt at cross-century conversation yet.
