Minton Piano Recital - Lunchtime Concert Series at The Tung Auditorium

Journey into the world of nineteenth-century pianism with the University of Liverpool Music Department’s Ruth K. Minton as she explores the music of Franz Liszt (1811–1886) and Franz Schubert (1797–1828).

This concert spotlights the piano as an inspiration for pianist-composers. Liszt was a renowned improvisor and great supporter of musicians, particularly with his transcriptions of others’ work, including Schubert’s Lieder; while Schubert’s improvisations took place in the Viennese Salon, they were equally vital to provide first-hand experience and ideas, which are perfectly captured in the D.935 Impromptus.

This lunchtime concert brings together the music of two composers who not only shared a first name, but also a joy of exploring the piano’s expressive potential and delving into music that remains transcendent and beautiful today.

This concert will last approximately 50 minutes.

Part of the Lunchtime Concert Series.
