Had Liszt written nothing but his Piano Sonata in B minor, it would have been enough to induce him into the hall of fame of the greatest composers of all time. It is a towering monument in the history of music and a favorite of pianists everywhere, owing in equal part to its emotional narrative of epic proportions, its ingenious motivic development worthy of a Wagner opera, as well as the sheer bravura required to execute its many technical challenges. Yet, it was never an easy piece to make sense of. Music theorists vehemently disagree over its structural analysis. Johannes Brahms allegedly fell asleep while listening to it. And the famous Viennese music critic Eduard Hanslick remarked that “whoever has heard that and finds it beautiful, is beyond help.” Are you ready to find your way through the imaginative world of Liszt’s Piano Sonata?

About The Art of Listening: In this uniquely interactive concert, you will be encouraged to share observations, ask questions, and make the music your own. Your host, award-winning pianist Javor Bracic, will be your personal tour guide. No previous knowledge or musical experience is required to enjoy this workshop.
