Beethoven by Liszt IV
This cycle offers the opportunity to listen to who has probably been the best symphonist in history, undoubtedly the most revolutionary (Beethoven), transferred to the piano by whom may well be considered as the composer who has made the piano the most symphonic instrument (Liszt). Just three years ago, Granada-born Garvayo declared in a radio interview to be quite “omnivorous” in his musical tastes, so that his love for contemporary and chamber music is not at all at odds with facing two of Beethoven’s symphonies (Second and Fifth) taken to the piano by Liszt. In that same interview, Garvayo admired Liszt’s immense ability to take Beethoven’s orchestra to the piano. His concert with these two symphonies is an exciting adventure, and as he has pointed out himself, we must listen to this Fifth without preconceived ideas, open to listen to other details. Another step, and very big one, on this trip through the most pianistic symphonic Beethoven.
