Sophie Pacini

Pianist Sophie Pacini performs at Perth Concert Hall. Chopin: Scherzo No 2. Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 21 'Waldstein'. Liszt: Reminiscences de Don Juan, S418.

Kate Molleson presents the last in a series of four programmes featuring some of the most outstanding and thought-provoking pianists of our time. German-Italian pianist Sophie Pacini begins today's concert with a work that Schumann commented was 'overflowing with tenderness', Chopin's Scherzo No 2 in B flat minor. Next, she plays the first Beethoven sonata she ever learned, aged 13, the Waldstein, and finishes with Liszt's fiendish operatic fantasy, his Réminiscences de Don Juan.

Chopin: Scherzo No.2 in B flat minor, Op.31
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op.53, 'Waldstein'
Liszt: Réminiscences de Don Juan, S.418
