Program

Franz Liszt was very young when he read Dante's The Divine Comedy, and the impression that it made on him was such that, almost ten years later, he dedicated his first work to it. The Dante Sonata, which was later revised, would be the origin of the piano sonata in a single movement that opens the recital. It is a piece divided into two parts – the lamentation of souls in hell and the blessed joy of paradise. It is full of references and thematic games that require great virtuosity.

Also known as the "Wanderer Fantasy", Franz Schubert draws on the rhythmic motif that appears at the beginning and forms the structure of the entire work of his lied Der Wanderer. This sonata-form fantasy for piano is divided into four movements, but the motto theme used to link each part, which always begins with a variation of the main theme, makes the journey appear to be without break, as if the wanderer does not have time to rest. Considered Schubert's most technically demanding composition, the composer himself is said to have exclaimed, "Let the devil play it!"

In his home country, Sandro Gegechkori, winner of the 66th Maria Canals International Music Competition, is known as the "piano wizard". We will have the opportunity to enjoy his magic with two outstanding pieces.
