Presented by Cecilian Chamber Series
- Sunday, February 12 - 3:00pm
The Cecilian Chamber Series presents the fourth concert of the 2022-2023 season, "Featuring the Fazioli".
With this program, Nicolas Namoradze pays tribute to György Ligeti, whose 100th birthday we celebrate in 2023. The first half approaches his iconic piano etudes from both past and present: a selection of etudes is interspersed with excerpts from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, works central to the birth of the “keyboard study,” and some of Namoradze’s own etudes, pieces deeply inspired by Ligeti’s works in the genre. The second half presents Schubert’s final sonata, a work that Ligeti studied, played, and loved—a relationship immortalized by a photo of the composer playing the piano in his Hamburg home, with this sonata on the music stand.
Ticket prices are $55 for Level 1 seating, $50 for Level 2 seating, and $20 for Students. Prices do not include fees or taxes.
