This piano recital will feature some of the most beloved by audiences works inspired by nature: Schumann’s Forest Scenes, Beethoven’s “Moonlight” and Rachmaninov’s “Musical Moments”.
At this time of uncertainty and turmoil the nature around us serves as a source of peace, reflection and beauty. Robert Schumann was inspired by the mystery and wonders of the forest while writing his “Forest Scenes” and Beethoven’s audiences imagined a magnificent moonlight when listening to his Sonata op. 27 no. 2. Similarly to mother nature’s creation, Rachmaninov’s set of 6 Musical Moments are a monumental work full of dramatic contrasts, unique colors and impressive virtuosity.
