  • Image preview 7:30pm - 9:30pm: Paul Roberts (Concert Pianist)

    Paul Roberts presents a recital ranging from innocence to experience, from the miniature to the monumental, from the stories of childhood to the tragic power of epic poetry.

    Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, first published in 1854, is one of the greatest piano works of the 19th century, celebrated for its emotional power and an architectural strength that alternates formidable virtuosity with exquisite poetry. In Liszt’s lifetime the Sonata was regarded as a descriptive work inspired by Goethe’s tragic drama Faust, one of the pinnacles of German literature. Though Liszt never made this connection himself, there is ample evidence to show that he was deeply fascinated by Faust throughout his life. Roberts, who is currently writing a book, Reading Liszt, will examine the literary background and suggest that the Sonata might be interpreted in operatic terms, with the main characters of Goethe’s drama—Faust, Mephistopheles and Gretchen—as the protagonists.

    As an antidote to Lisztian extroversion his recital will begin with Debussy’s charmingly modest and witty Children’s Corner, six miniatures dedicated to Debussy’s five-year-old daughter depicting the toys and fantasies of her nursery. The dedication reads: “To my dear little Chouchou with fond apologies from her father for what follows.”
