Benefit Concert

Chamber Music at Helen Haddad Hall:
A Benefit Concert for
ChamberFest Brown County

Franz Liszt: 12 Transcendental Studies
On the program are the twelve studies, or etudes, that Franz Liszt (1811-1886) began writing at age 15; he revised them extensively throughout his performing career, transforming them from straightforward technical studies to pieces that push performers to the limits of their skill. There’s not a second to sit back and relax. Technical challenges like arpeggios, rapid scales and intricate passages abound. You’ll hear a complex mixture of structures: sonata, variations, and transformed themes. But along with the technical challenge is music of deep emotion. You’ll journey through a landscape of changing moods and expressions. Liszt, and these pieces, inspired composers who came after them. You, too, will be inspired.
