The great Romantic repertoire is the star of the solo piano concert, with the most significant works in the piano literature of German composer Johannes Brahms. Cosy harmonies, soft melodic lines, passages filled with authenticity, tranquillity and a serene resignation; music that is everywhere lofty and severe but never “standoffish”, on the contrary terribly seductive.

Franz Schubert stands out as the figure who marks the boundary between classicism and romanticism. At a time when the Beethovenian ghost still impregnated and disquieted the musical world, a Schubert figure with an ambivalent soul was emerging. Schubert is capable, with the same motif, of evoking places that are as real and earthly as they are much higher and more distant planes. Schubert treads and traces his own path, finding nourishment in a terrain where narrative eloquence is the predominant factor.

SCHUBERT
In his collections of Improvvisi, Franz Schubert impressively showed at the end of his life how a lyrical, song-like form could be rendered on the piano.
Despite their simplicity, the Opus 142 improvises prove to be genuine works of art and are considered to be among the most beloved pieces of romantic piano music.

SIBELIUS

Sibelius wrote his piano music at a time when the composer could earn extra money by writing ‘salon pieces’ for the piano. Sound recording was still in its infancy, so many people learned to play the piano for fun. Sibelius’ piano music is well written and very musical. Grandiose and solemn, this piece is characteristic of Sibelius’ style, portraying the wintry stillness of the Nordic landscape.

CHOPIN

The improvisations are among Chopin’s most fascinating works: they are rather expansive, somewhat longer than the nocturnes and shorter than the ballades and scherzos.
These works fascinate us with their lightness and poetic mood, their unparalleled subtlety and the ‘delicacy of line’ with which these ‘musical landscapes’ are drawn.
