Known for her grace and emotional range, Chinese pianist Siqian Li tells stories through her virtuosic playing. There are two transcriptions by composers who admired their older masters, with Liszt’s interpretation of Beethoven’s pastoral songs, and Percy Grainger conjuring up the sumptuous sound world of Richard Strauss. Gershwin’s preludes show off his brilliance and variety, from Brazilian and Spanish rhythms to a bluesy lullaby, whilst Russian visionary Alexander Scriabin’s Fantasy depicts moonlight and storms across the sea’s vast expanse. In Liszt’s virtuosic retelling of a Faust legend, the devil takes up the violin, dancing us all into an ecstatic frenzy.

Ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake before or after the concert.
