Programme: Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt
Even though the relationship between Chopin and Liszt was somewhat controversial, mutual admiration was an important component, as it becomes clear in the pseudo-biography of Chopin, which Liszt wrote after his colleague’s death. Through this text, along with recordings of Liszt’s students playing both Liszt and Chopin, as well as other relevant sources about Liszt as a pedagogue, Rosalía Gómez Lasheras impregnates her own playing with the traces we have left of the legendary performing style of Franz Liszt.
