Only Liszt & Lisitsa (OK & a few others) could play this! El Contrabandista, St. Pancras. 12 March 2013 - The day a very chilly St Pancras Station was warmed by the music of Liszt, Chopin, Beethoven and Rachmaninov, provided by Valentina Lisitsa while she waited for a train! We were so lucky to be able to enjoy this informal and unusual concert. Thank you Valentina!
Note - some viewers have been angered by the title and posted abusive comments. Pianists other than Liszt and Lisitsa have played El Contrabandista, but as the piece is extremely hard and, some would say, does not warrant the effort required to master it, they are few and far between. Also as some have mentioned, Liszt is dead. So although the title is strictly speaking not totally accurate, and is a little tongue-in-cheek, it is not so far from the truth so please refrain from posting nasty comments. Thank you.

Vilde Frang: Strauss SonataALBUM AVAILABLE HERE: http://links.emi.com/Frang ... One of the leading young soloists to emerge from Scandinavia in recent years, Vilde Frang is noted particularly for her superb musical expression, as well as her well-developed virtuosity and musicality.
Vilde Frang in the recording studio with pianist Michail Lifits.
Vilde Frang said, "With this recital recording I want to express my devotion towards my compatriot Edvard Grieg's national romanticism, my fascination for Bartók's monumental solo violin sonata following in the footsteps of Bach with hints of folkloristic elements, and my passion for Strauss's sonata, a symphonic tone poem for just two lucky instruments. I am excited to bring these great works together on an album."
Following a recent performance of the Bartók sonata, the Danish newspaper Politiken wrote, "Vilde Frang is more than a virtuoso violinist. She is a great and rare artist [...] not only fantastically unrestrained by Bartók's tremendous technical challenges; she is also equal to the work's musical complexity and magnitude. The effect is never a goal in itself, and there is no need for Vilde Frang to boast with her skills. She can do whatever she wants, and she wants more than most; but what she wants is completely shaped by an insightful respect for the work." The Grieg and Strauss sonatas, composed in 1865 and 1887 respectively by the 22-year-old Grieg and the 23-year-old Strauss, are works filled with the fire and passion of youth while Bartók composed his technically challenging and musically complex solo sonata in 1944, 18 months before his death. Nevertheless the sonatas complement one another. Vilde frequently performs the Bartók and Strauss together.

"It's always a confidence boost attending the workshops, especially at the minute when it's difficult to find time to practice as I do worry that I'm going backwards!" Nicola Reid, Inverurie.
"The games helped me learn lots in a fun, exciting way. The meditation helped me to focus before we got started, which was really good as I can get a little nervous." Yvonne Payne, Longside.
