Three works which are a constant embellishment of the world piano literature. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor in an exceptionally magnificent transcription of Ferruccio Busoni is followed by the well-known Waldstein Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, ‘an archetype of Viennese and Beethovenian classic’ as the German critic Joachim Kaiser stated. The programme is crowned with Franz Schubert’s last piano sonata from 1828.
The young American pianist Claire Huangci, the winner of the Mozart Prize at the Géza Anda International Piano Competition (2018), ‘continuously captivates audiences with her gradiant virtuosity, artistic sensitivity, keen interactive sense and subtle auditory dramaturgy’ (Salzburger Nachrichten).
