Benjamin Martin

PIANO RECITAL

PART OF WOOD, METAL AND VIBRATING AIR – PIANO RECITAL SERIES

Pianist and composer Benjamin Martin is as intelligent a musician as you’re ever likely to come across. In this rich concert he teases out a famous pensée by another pianist and composer Ferruccio Busoni: ‘Bach is the foundation of piano playing. Liszt is the summit. The two make Beethoven possible.’ Busoni’s own arrangements of works by Bach sit alongside the master’s magnificent C minor Partita and one of Beethoven’s sonatas in the same key (Opus 10, No.1). Spectacular and lyrical works by Liszt are interspersed.
