Explore the full range of the piano in its expressive possibilities
Pianist Lindsay Garritson has performed throughout the United States and abroad since the age of four. Her exquisite musicianship has been acknowledged with numerous accolades including top prizes at the Montreal International Piano Competition, the USA SU Bösendorfer International Piano Competition and the Mozarteum (Salzburg) International Chopin Competition.
This concert celebrates composers who have explored the full range of the piano in its expressive possibilities, palette of colours and virtuosic capabilities. Beethoven’s sublime F-sharp Sonata paves the way for Franz Liszt, one of Beethoven’s musical heirs. In his Second Ballade, Liszt creates an orchestral sound world featuring a triumphant and moving climax. Scriabin’s Fourth Sonata then takes us to a world of bursting colour and emotional ecstasy. Topping it off are Carl Vine’s charming bagatelles and the world premiere of his spectacular new Sonata, a work full of poetic intimacy and ultimate brilliance, which will no doubt be the highlight of the performance.
