Description

SUN, March 31: Maryam Raya Kheirbeck, Piano

PROGRAM:

Two fascinating works by Beethoven & Schumann are presented side by side and in contrast to each other. Beethoven's Fantasia is arguably one of the most improvisational and a most challenging piece of music ever composed. Set against that, Schumann's Symphonic Etudes with its theme and 16 variations (5 posthumously published) is not only itself, highly improvisational, but uses the variations principle to further explore the complexity and beauty of polyphony.

L.V. Beethoven: Fantasia in G minor op. 77

Robert Schumann: Symphonic Études, Op. 13

  • Theme – Andante
  • Etude I (Variation 1) – Un poco più vivo
  • Etude II (Variation 2) – Andante
  • Etude III – Vivace
  • Etude IV (Variation 3) – Allegro marcato
  • Etude V (Variation 4) – Scherzando
  • Etude VI (Variation 5) – Agitato
  • Etude VII (Variation 6) – Allegro molto
  • Etude VIII (Variation 7) – Sempre marcatissimo
  • Etude IX – Presto possibile
  • Etude X (Variation 8) – Allegro con energia
  • Etude XI (Variation 9) – Andante espressivo
  • Etude XII (Finale) – Allegro brillante (based on Marschner's theme).
