Program: "FIVE GENTLE GENIUSES AND THE BIRTH OF ROMANTICISM"

Invitation to the Dance, Op. 65 ..... by Carl Maria von Weber

Nocturne in A major ..... by John Field

Capriccio in A minor, Op. 33, No. 1 ..... by Felix Mendelssohn

Waltz Sentimental in A major, Op. 50, No. 13 ..... by Franz Schubert

Soirees de Vienna No. 6 in A major ..... by Franz Liszt
Liszt was not a pre-romantic composer, and though he was a genius, there was nothing gentle about his musical style. A highflying romantic, he was nonetheless fond of many pre-romantic composers, perhaps non so much as Schubert. As a tribute, and for his own delight, Liszt both transcribed and re-imangined many works by Schubert. In his sixth Soirees de Vienne, we can hear what this full-fledged romantic composer, using considerable imagination and expanded pianistic skills, could make of Schubert's original, innocent waltz.
