Arguably the greatest pianist of all time, Franz Liszt and his virtuosity was legendary. In this evening’s program Timothy plays his epic masterpiece, the Sonata in B minor.
Liszt often drew upon extra-musical inspiration in his compositions and tonight’s program also features the Fantasia quasi Sonata (inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy), the demonic Mephisto Waltz and the meditative Nuages Gris, all extremes of his revolutionary compositional style.
“I look forward to performing these works for you, so please join me and the wonderful crew at MDCH as we stream this live to your home.” Timothy
