Liszt: Poetic and Religious Harmonies
September 24, 25, 26 & 27 2010; 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Almost no one plays the complete Poetic and Religious Harmonies by Franz Liszt. Between the sheer finger-bending virtuosity, emotionally-draining intensity, and epic length, each of the ten movements stands as its very own musical monolith. But when experienced all together, the cycle gains an almost mystical transcendence, a spiritual journey from the opening “Invocation,” the meditative glow of “The Blessing of God in Solitude,” the anguish of “Funeral,” and the quiet rapture of “Hymn of Love.” It’s a lot for one pianist to take on, so these programs will feature a pair of keyboard stars: Adam Tendler and Jenny Lin, both bringing their unique talents and vision to their respective half of the piece.
