The Great Romantics: Cork PianoFest Recital Series

Friday, 7 June 2024, 1.00pm

Music by Chopin, Liszt, Ignace and Rachmaninov

Michael McHale, Nicholas O’Halloran and Santa Ignace

The tradition of the pianist-composer is a long and rich one. Many of the greatest composers in history were also virtuoso keyboard players, and as a result the solo piano repertoire dwarves that of any other instrument. Perhaps three of the greatest of all of the many exceptional pianist-composers are Chopin,

Liszt and Rachmaninov, each of them renowned performers who pushed piano writing to ever-greater expressive and technical extremes. Their artistry has inspired countless subsequent generations of pianists and composers alike, including one of today’s performers Santa Ignace who will be performing one of her own virtuoso compositions, ‘Malvine’.
