The Concert Programme
Yuexuan Song will be playing a programme of four pieces of fantastic piano music. The afternoon will begin with a little bit of Bach. ‘Sheep may safely graze, from Cantata N0 208’ is a favourite of many pianists although it is rarely heard in concert. Following this, Yuexuan Song will go on to play Beethoven’s ’15 Variations and a Fugue on an original theme in E flat, ‘Erotica variations’’. Next will come a piece by the king of piano music himself’ Chopin. Chopin is known for his fiendish and technically challenging piano studies and Song will play ‘Nocturne No 7 in C sharp minor’. To end the concert, some Liszt will be played in the form of ‘Rhapsodie espagnole’.
