Études ''Li...''

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
-Zwei Konzertetüden
1.Waldesrauschen, 2.Gnomenreigen
-from the Études d'exécution transcendante
3.Paysage, 5.Feux Follets
-from the Grandes Etudes de Paganini
3.La Campanella
Ligeti: -from the Etudes 1st book
1.Touches bloquées, 4.Fanfares, 5.Arc-en-ciel, 6.Automne à Varsovie
Liapunov (Lyapunov):
-from the Etudes d'exécution transcendante
1.Berceuse, 11.Rondo des Sylphes, 12.Elégie en Mémoire de François Liszt

The concept:
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!
