It takes extraordinary skill as an orchestrator to condense an entire Beethoven symphony into a version for a solo instrument, but that is just what Franz Liszt accomplished in his piano transcriptions. Hear virtuoso pianist Christoper Taylor perform three of these transcendent symphony transcriptions, works he describes as a “new perspective on something familiar."

This concert is part of our (Re)Hearing Beethoven Festival. Be sure to check out the full range of events!
