Recital (again...) program
on: April 10, 2006, 01:47:09 AM
Hey guys! What do you think of that program :

Mozart - Sonata in B-flat, K333
Schumann - Abegg variations
Chabrier - Selection from Pieces pittoresques (8 - Improvisation, 3 - Tourbillon, 6 - Idylle, 10 - Scherzo-valse)

Intermission

Poulenc - Selection from Improvisations (#1, 6, 7, 10, 13, 15)
Liszt - Impromptu
Wagner/Liszt - Recitative & romance from Tannhauser "Evening star"
Liszt - Rhapsodie espagnole

Does it seem balanced and appropriate ? Any parts you'd change, or any additions ?

Nice programme!

Especially Chabrier... Chabrier is my favourite french composer! I would go to your concert just to hear chabrier (and poulenc)!!! Did you play the bourrée fantasque? What a grrreat piece. ::)

I would come for the Rhapsodie alone :D

Great program!

Maybe have some encores ready ;)

Poulenc - Selection from Improvisations (#1, 6, 7, 10, 13, 15)
Liszt - Impromptu
Wagner/Liszt - Recitative & romance from Tannhauser "Evening star"
Wagner/Liszt - Spinning song from Der fliegenden Hollander
Liszt - Rhapsodie espagnole

I am having doubts about the Schumann all of the sudden... Not that it doesn't fit the program, but it's a piece of work and I'm not sure I like it enough to practice it. I was thinking to replace, maybe with a Spanish piece (to kind of echo the Rapsodie espagnole later on). Maybe Albeniz "Almeria" or "El Albaicin", or Granados "Coloquio en la reja".But it doesn't seem to make the transition from Mozart to Chabrier as smooth.  Or maybe Ravel "Jeux d'eau". But that looks like too many French composers for one program. What do you guys think? Any suggestions?
