Today, I would like to introduce one of my recital projects for the year 2011 in memory of 200th birth anniversary of Franz Liszt.
Programme: Études "Li..."
-Trois Études de Concert
1.Il Lamento, 2.La Leggerezza, 3.Un Sospiro
-Étude de Perfectionement -Ab irato
-from the Études d'exécution transcendante
3.Paysage, 5.Feux Follets
-from the Grandes Etudes de Paganini
Ligeti: -from the Etudes 1st book
1.Touches bloquées, 4.Fanfares, 5.Arc-en-ciel, 6.Automne à Varsovie
-from the Etudes d'exécution transcendante
1.Berceuse, 11.Rondo des Sylphes, 12.Elégie en Mémoire de François Liszt
These pieces are all etudes that have subtitles and fantastic content (it's not just "studies"to improve one's pianistic skill). I think Liszt is one of the first composers who attempted to create a new horizen of "Etude"to make them played in concerts, and the Etudes of Ligeti and Liapunov were much influenced by Liszt. Putting those etudes together in a program, I accidentaly found a common point of these three composers; their names begin with "Li"!!
I wonder if this is the key to the fantastic concert etudes...
I hope to present this program in many different countries and cities next year!
