CONCERT – LISZT
At the end of his life, Franz Liszt abandoned the demonstrative style and staggering virtuosity that had made him a veritable “hero” of the piano throughout Europe. Dividing his life between Budapest, Rome and Weimar, he recalled his beloved Hungary and those who meant much to him, like Richard Wagner, whose artistic support he readily acknowledged. Devoid of artifice, Liszt’s last works for the piano are very personal. Beatrice Berrut’s inward and expressive playing is perfectly attuned to these late pieces – miracles of poetry, at once sober and evocative, that foreshadow modernity.
