Liszt’s La lugubre gondola and Dvorák’s Violin Sonatina in G, Op. 100. In another contrasted pairing, Liszt’s keyboard homage to his son-in-law Richard Wagner, who died in Venice in 1883, shares a programme with Dvorák’s blithe sonatina that refracts Mozart’s spirit through a Slavonic Romantic sensibility.

Romantic Trilogy 3: Thursday 8 December at 7:00pm - Late Romantic works by Fauré, Brahms, Dvorák and Franck.
