Les jeux d’eaux à la villa d’Este
Tarantelle di bravura (Venezia e Napoli)
Piano Sonata in B minor
The hypnotically intense performances of pianist Llyr Williams have thrilled audiences with their breathtaking power and revelatory insights. For this concert, he scales the heights of 19th-century piano virtuosity in contrasting pieces by one of the greatest ever composers for the instrument.
Liszt is famed for his spectacular showpieces that push performers to their limits. But his music is equally possessed of a transcendental spirituality, as revealed in the ecstatic Vallée d’Obermann, which conveys a sense of wonder at nature’s grandeur. Les jeux d’eaux à la villa d’Este is a shimmering evocation of light and water, and the monumental Sonata in B minor, a piece of startling originality and daring emotional scope, is the ideal showpiece for Williams’s astonishing abilities.
