Evening Concert

Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays works by Ligeti; Daniil Trifonov plays Schumann’s “Symphonic Etudes”


Listeners in Schumann's time thought that his "Symphonic Etudes" were wild and crazy. Ligeti's "Etudes" qualify as being similar.....and by contrast, Chopin Mazurkas are not so wild and crazy. . . Tonight at 7:00 on the Evening Concert on WILL FM-90.9, pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard is featured in a number of works by Ligeti on "The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center". At 8:00 Daniil Trifonov plays the “Symphonic Etudes” of Schumann on the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival.
