In a recital that covers a kaleidoscopic range of colors and styles, Beatrice Rana makes her Presenting Series recital debut with some of the most demanding and dazzling music written for piano. Evocative and hypnotic pieces by Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Debussy move from avenues of cypresses to moonlit terraces before the western wind whisks us away to an enchanted island. Rana then turns her focus to Liszt's monumental B minor Sonata: one of the most original and forward-looking piano sonatas of the 19th century.
Revered for the intelligence and depth of her interpretations, Rana is sought-after the world over for playing that has a delicate, almost weightless quality. Her gift for weaving gossamer textures comes to the fore in a program matched by a fearless technical address that blurs dreams and reality.
