About the Event
Andra Băcilă gives a solo piano recital – a program of Liszt piano works. Unfortunately, due to illness William Hancox will not be able to play the original programme Carnaval and we are grateful to Andra Băcilă who agreed to step in at short notice.
Her programme will include the following works:
Consolation no.3, which is the most popular of the Consolations; Legend no.2: St Francis walking on the waves – the piece was inspired by a picture owned by Liszt of St. Francis of Paola (who was Liszt’s name saint); two movements – Vallée d’Obermann and Marriage of the Virgin – from the Années de pèlerinage (Years of Pilgrimage) which is widely considered as the masterwork and summation of Liszt’s musical style. Ballade no. 2 which is know to be based on the Greek myth of Hero and Leander; and finally the recital will finish with Dante Sonata, a Fantasia in one movement
Andra Băcilă is a promising young pianist. She has recently played a solo recital at the Liszt Institute (Balassi Institute) in Paris, and in 2022, she won numerous competitions including The Hungarian Music Festival, International Moscow Music Online Competition and Future Stars International Piano Competition.
