Friday 4th December: Bela Hartmann (Piano)


From Alpha to Omega

According to the great Italian/German pianist and composer Ferrucio Busoni, if Liszt is the summit (the Omega) of piano playing, then Bach is the foundation (the Alpha) and the two make Beethoven possible. This programme includes works by all three masters of the keyboard and demonstrates that, while times and the instruments might change, nothing changes in the reflection of nature and human expression.
