Sunday Piano Series: Sarah Beth Briggs and James LisneyClassical Music
Humperdinck Hansel and Gretel Overture
Ravel Mother Goose Suite
Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker (highlights)
Known for their entertaining performances, British pianists Sarah Beth Briggs and James Lisney’s piano duo bring us a festive recital of Fairy Tale characters. First up are Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, in an arrangement retaining the rich atmosphere of the light and popular original. Austrian composer Hans Gál’s Marionettes conjure marvellous images of Commedia characters Pantalone, Columbine and the mischievous Harlequin. Ravel’s colourful Mother Goose Suite, written for the children of friends and based on the fairy tales of Perrault, include Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty. No festive concert would be complete without the Nutcracker, with this piano duo arrangement of the glittering highlights.
