Details

As part of celebrating Bach’s music on this Bach weekend, Kristian Chong plays arrangements by the world’s most virtuosic pianist-composers including Liszt and Busoni.

The program includes organ transcriptions by Liszt and Busoni, the revolutionary Fantasie which includes elements of improvisatory freedom scattered throughout its tightly-knit structure, and two arrangements by Busoni, both of which offer a distinctly powerful, emotional and spiritual conclusion to the concert program.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
