About This Performance

The greatly admired English pianist begins her PCMS recital with an early piece of Schoenberg’s and concludes with compelling works by Lizst and Ravel. The evening, though, is anchored by Schubert’s G Major Sonata, a work of meditative grandeur in which the outward suggestion of a timeless waltz gives way to an expansive and deeply affecting landscape.

Schoenberg: Six Little Pieces, Op. 19
Schubert: Sonata in G Major, D. 894
Liszt: Les jeux d’eaux à la Villa d’Este
Ravel: Jeux d’eau
Ravel: Valses Nobles et Sentimentales
Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody in A Minor, No. 13
Liszt: Reminiscences de Lucia di Lammermoor
