About This Event

Eloquent French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie performs an intriguing programme that moves from the clear spring-water of Fauré’s Barcarolles to depictions of Italian cities from Poulenc and Liszt.

Poulenc’s pianistic vision of Naples manages to be light-hearted and dazzling at the same time. Liszt was intrigued and inspired by the city’s furious traditional dance, the tarantella. He used that and the gondola songs of Venice in the broad emotional canvas that is his Venezia e Napoli.
