Lunchtime Classical Concert, Wednesday 31st May, 12.15pm

Hungarian pianist, Renata Konyicska has prepared a stunning concert for us at the end of May. It will start with Franz Liszt’s paraphrase of the Sarabande and Chaconne from Handel’s opera ‘Almira’. Although this opera has largely been forgotten, this free transcription for piano offers a grandiose and triumphal opening to the recital. Her programme also includes two Impromptus: the first again by Liszt, in F sharp major, which is a very expressive composition in the style of a Nocturne, and the second, will be the very famous Impromptu in A flat major by Franz Schubert, with which you will all be familiar.

At the centre of her programme, Renata will play Liszt’s arrangement for piano of ‘Six Polish Songs’ by Chopin. This set has long been a concert and recording favourite.

The final piece in her recital will be another of Liszt’s operatic fantasies for piano; this time, the very technically demanding, ‘Reminiscences de Don Juan’, based on themes from Mozart’s most popular opera, Don Giovanni.

(This is a change from the earlier publicised concert.)
