Budapest on the Bluff: Purely Piano
Franz Liszt was the rock star pianist of the 19th-century who invented the solo "recital" and wrote an immense amount of piano music to challenge future generations. His charisma, sense of drama, and big heart are celebrated in this program performed by three of his pianistic descendants: David Allen Wehr, Natasha Snitkovsky, and Barbara Nissman -- rounded out with rarities by Schubert and Brahms and with Bartók's seminal Allegro barbaro, reflecting the primitivism found in the art of Picasso.
