    Franz Liszt: Oct  20th - 26th
     
    Fransz Liszt is remembered as a virtuoso. Much of his self-composed concert repertoire is considered to be the most technically-difficult music written for piano. In the week of the anniversary of his birth, "The Blue Of The Night" features Liszt's late career compositions, including low-key pieces for cello and piano performed by, amongst others, Paul Lewis, Nikolai Lugansky, Pascal Amoyel and Emmanuelle Bertrand. Join us any night between now and Sunday, from 10pm...
