Brahms and Liszt ANTITHESIS

Tristan Lee

27 February 2015

Brahms: Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor,
Op. 5

Liszt: Piano Sonata in B minor

Tristan Lee is an Australian pianist rapidly gaining international recognition for his distinctive style and musicianship. Widely sought as a chamber musician and associate artist he has appeared twice at the Wigmore Hall to critical acclaim.

This program places head to head the two largest solo piano works of Brahms and Liszt. Composed in the same year but in many ways the antithesis of one another, Brahms’ youthful sonata and Liszt’s mature creation represent the opposing styles of Romanticism. Described by Robert Schumann as a ‘veiled symphony’ Brahms’ 5 movement masterpiece was written when the composer was only 20 years old.

If the Brahms is the closest thing to a symphony for the piano, Liszt’s Sonata is the solo version of a symphonic poem. This is a one movement work of around 30 minutes duration that shows Liszt at his most expressive and sophisticated.

This is an epic program that will push the performer to the limits and keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
