Bach – Busoni Chaconne in D minor
Liszt Ballade No. 2 in B minor
Schubert Fantasy in C, D760 (Wanderer)

Known for his colourful performances of Romantic music, French pianist Emmanuel Despax opens our series with a dramatic programme, beginning with the most celebrated of Ferruccio Busoni’s Bach transcriptions. Adapted from the 2nd Partita in D minor, this epic work remains one of the most technically challenging in the repertoire, achieving almost orchestral sonorities. Liszt’s Ballade No. 2 is no less virtuosic, its passionate lyricism and narrative drama achieving an almost operatic quality. Schubert’s famous Wanderer Fantasy provides a powerful finale, its driving rhythm propelling the story to an ecstatic climax.

Admission price includes tea, coffee and cake.
