Lunchtime Recital by John Paul Ekins (Piano)

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827) Piano Sonata No. 27 in E Minor, Op. 90
Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886) Sonetto del Petrarca, S.270/2
Franz Liszt - Liebesträume No. 1 in A Flat, S.541/1
Ludwig van Beethoven - Adelaide Op. 46, (arr. for piano by F. Liszt)

JP Ekins plays a programme tying together Beethoven and Liszt, two of the greatest pianists of their day, remembering that until deafness stopped his concert tours Beethoven was best known as a virtuoso pianist. JP begins with Beethoven's sonata composed at the same time as Liszt's birth. The E Minor sonata is Beethoven's most song-like sonata, and the recital moves on through two Liszt songs/tone poems, and brings the two composers together in Liszt’s transcription of Beethoven’s song Adelaide.
