Clandeboye Music Festival: Liszt, Mahler and Brahms
Concerts given the summer at the Clandeboye Music Festival in County Down. 1/4. Barry Douglas and friend in Liszt, Mahler and Brahms.
Sean Rafferty is on the Clandeboye Estate in County Down for this week of concerts recorded during the summer at the Clandeboye Music Festival. Each year Artistic Director and pianist, Barry Douglas invites his musician friends to join him at his festival in Northern Ireland. Today solo piano works by Liszt and Brahms. The Dante Sonata from the Années de Pèlerinage, Deuxième Année - music inspired by the art and literature that Liszt encountered on his travels in Italy - and Variations and Fugue on a theme by Handel by Brahms - a dazzling piece which is still considered one of the finest sets of keyboard variations. In between, Barry Douglas is joined by guest musicians for an early one movement Piano Quartet by Mahler.
