The narrative power of 88 keys

Karol Szymanowski’s fascination with the pagan cultures of Mediterranean resulted in his Masques, piano pieces as decadent as they are vital. For his Kreisleriana, Schumann was inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s stories about the witty but moody composer Johannes Kreisler. An evening that surges and swings, between virtuosity and deliberation, cheerfulness and sentimentality.
