Omega Ensemble's Co-Artistic Director and pianist Maria Raspopova performs in the most intimate of chamber music settings: as solo pianist.
In this concert, the first in a series of two, Maria takes the audience on a journey of vastly contrasting sound-worlds. Commencing with the charming and elegant French Suite IV in E flat major by Bach, our feet are firmly planted in the 18th century. In stark contrast, Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives, a collection of whimsical musical vignettes are at once dissonant, pleasant, effervescent and bright, almost Debussy-like.
The program also includes the virtuosic and highly energetic Tarantella from Annees De Pelerinage II by Franz Liszt, Mendelssohn’s delicate and scurrying Rondo Capriccioso Op.14, alongside two of Chopin’s challenging and evocative Etudes, and his dramatic Nocturne Op. 15 No. 1.
