SCHUBERT Fantasie in C D760 'Wanderer Fantasy'
BEETHOVEN Sonata No. 23 in F minor Op. 57 'Appassionata'
PROKOFIEV No. 4 The Young Juliet from Ten Pieces Op. 75 'Romeo and Juliet'
PROKOFIEV No. 10 Romeo Bids Juliet Farewell from Ten Pieces Op. 75 'Romeo and Juliet'
GERSHWIN (transc. Julian Jacobson) An American In Paris (for piano four hands)

Schubert's "Wanderer" Fantasy, based on a song of that name, is an uncharacteristically virtuoso work and also, in its combining of four movements into a single span of music, an extremely influential one. The torrential passions of Beethoven's "Appassionata" have hardly been superseded to this day. And to finish in a lighter vein, two numbers from Prokofiev's ever-popular "Romeo and Juliet" and my own transcription of Gershwin's colourful "An American in Paris".

PLEASE NOTE START TIME OF 3.00PM.
