Endgame V - James Lisney, piano at St George's
Tel: +44 (0)845 40 24 001
Pianist James Lisney continues his Endgame project, a series of concerts focussing on the late piano music of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert and Chopin - four composers who are particularly close to his heart. This latest concert in the series features two monumental works by Schubert and Beethoven
Schubert - Piano Sonata in G, D894
Beethoven - Diabelli Variations, Op 120
The late works of composers, artists and writers can be intransigent and contradictory, sometimes valedictory, but often display an exceptional aesthetic mastery and distilled artistic focus.
In 'Endgame' British pianist James Lisney explores the notion of 'Late Style' through some of the most endlessly satisfying piano music. These extraordinary works demonstrate that lateness is not just about temporal maturity but is also an attitude of mind; here there is the sense of a life lived with intensity, that time is of the essence...
