GALA PIANO RECITAL by MICHAEL HOUSTOUN
To celebrate the arrival of the new
FAZIOLI GRAND PIANO
Michael Houstoun’s delightful programme, designed to showcase the piano’s qualities, has a hint of Italian flavour in honour of
the Fazioli’s country of origin: Bach’s Concerto “in the Italian style”, Liszt’s Petrarch Sonnets (inspired by the works of the great 14th century
Italian poet), and Les jeux d'eau à la Villa d'Este, also by Liszt, which paints a musical portrait of the famous fountains of the Villa d’Este at Tivoli.
The programme also includes an intriguing Sonata by the Ukrainian composer Nikolai Kapustin and Schumann’s magnificent Kreisleriana.
