  1. Prelude, fugue and variation in B minor Op 18 - César Franck, transcribed by Harold Bauer
  2. Fantasie in C Op 17 - Robert Schumann
  3. Mephisto Waltz No 1, 'Der Tanz in der Dorfschenke' S 514 - Franz Liszt

Described as “a poet and a dramatist”, Hong Kong pianist, and Young Steinway Artist, Rachel Cheung takes us on a poetic journey from the pastoral sounds of Cesar Franck, through the Romance of a wistful Schumann to the flamboyance of Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz, in which the devil dances villagers away to their death. One of Belgian organist César Franck’s greatest works, The Prelude, Fugue and Variation, was composed as part of Six Pieces pour le Grand Orgue of Saint Clotilde where he worked. This exquisite piano arrangement evokes a pastoral scene, with shepherds piping in the fields. Schumann’s passionate Fantasie is one of his greatest compositions. Written partly for his wife Clara and partly as a homage to Beethoven to raise funds for a statue to the composer in Bonn, it is one of the central piano works of the Romantic period.

Concerts last an hour and the ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake.
