WARBURTON RECITAL (article first published : 2004-11-16)

Virtuoso Durban-based pianist Andrew Warburton plays Liszt's legendary Sonata in B minor in Pietermaritzburg on November 23.

Admired by some, reviled by others, few works have inspired such differing opinions. Brahms fell asleep when Liszt gave the first performance, Chopin despised it, Wagner called it the work of genius. One of the most grand and multi-layered compositions of piano music ever penned it is now regarded as the peak of 19th century piano music. Most great pianists have played it. Others regard it as a bombastic and rattling racket.

To find out what the fuss is all about you will have to hear it for yourself. Also on the hour-long programme is Chopin's Fantasie in F minor.

The concert will take place on November 23 at 19h00 in the Epworth Chapel in Golf Road, Pietermaritzburg. Tickets R30. Bookings through Music Revival on 033 342 3051 or e-mail: chris@musicrevival.co.za
