Ji Liu presents a remarkable recital at Verbier Festival.

Ji Liu begins with two of Liszt's Transcendental Etudes (Appassionata and Harmonie du soir). These selections belong to a series of twelve solo piano compositions dedicated to the Polish virtuoso's teacher Czerny, and their technical challenges easily assert Liszt's moniker as the "Paganini of the Piano." The recital's other highlights include Schubert's unfinished Piano Sonata No. 8, two of Debussy's Préludes, and Saint-Saëns' spell-binding Danse macabre.

Made possible by the support of the Tabor Foundation.
