A rare recital, combining piano, voice and a speaker, in a presentation offering originality and quality.

 

Liszt, a giant among composers, has been sorely overlooked of late. Some of his works are almost never performed although they are beautiful and emotionally quite intense: his lieder. This recital consists of ten of Liszt’s lieder, among his most powerful, using texts by three of the great German poets, Goethe, Schiller and Heine.

And between the pieces, Franz Liszt, as performed by Gil Kether, will speak about himself and his era, presenting the pieces with an anecdote or a few verses ... Many personal quotes of Liszt’s have been inserted in the text.

This exceptional programme will be performed by:

Nicole Kuster, soprano http://nicole.kuster.monsite-orange.fr
