A stormy ride through the four elements awaits you!

 

Edvard Grieg's deep connection to the earth is evident in his rarely heard solo arrangement of the Peer Gynt Suite. "Morning Mood" and "In the Hall of the Mountain King" are among the most famous melodies of the classcial music.  You will experience  two approches to "Jeux d'eau" by  Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel  and get to know one of the most famous "wrong notes" in the history of music.

 

"The greatest force in the world is the pianissimo."

~ Maurice Ravel

 

Three preludes by Claude Debussy focus on wind. They span from the still evening air full of delicate sounds to a full-blown hurricane. The fiery finale takes place in the spirited and passionate musical world of Italy. The paraphrase of Verdi's Rigoletto by Franz Liszt is an impressive example of the popular piano arrangements of the 19th century. The Tarantella from Venezia e Napoli sends you off with wild rhythms of this southern Italian folk dance.
