Romantic Trilogy 2: Lunchtime Recital (Liszt & Dvorák)
Watch the Concert again here.
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.
