Woodward Faculty/Guest Artist Recital: A Franz Liszt Bicentennial Celebration

In addition to his dazzling abilities as a pianist, Franz Liszt was one of history’s most prolific and influential composers. Join the Carleton music faculty in this extravagant and joyful celebration of his work: pianist Kenneth Huber will perform some solo piano pyrotechnics, vocal faculty members Ben Allen and Rick Penning will join pianist Matthew McCright in breath-taking gems of the vocal repertoire, and violinist Mary Horozaniecki, cellist Tom Rosenberg and pianist Nicola Melville will present Liszt’s rarely-performed piano trio arrangement of “Le Carnaval de Pest.” Guest pianists Jill Dawe, Kent McWilliams and Esther Wang will join Melville in the uproarious two-piano eight-hands version of Liszt’s beloved Second Hungarian Rhapsody.
