Music & Comedy

Tea Time Concert: Wenting Shi, piano


Pianist Wenting Shi takes the audience on a Whimsical Voyage. Picture yourself by the tranquil lake at Wallenstadt in Switzerland, the soft melodies echoing the serenity of the surroundings. Swiftly, we move to a charming French theater, where the vibrant comedy of the “Bouffon” comes alive in a delightful mix of enchanting notes. Our next destination is Italy, where the charismatic Don Juan, both wealthy and playful, graces us with his presence. Finally, we’ll arrive in Russia, stepping into a lively carnival atmosphere. Imagine the magic as a skilled magician introduces three puppets with human spirits. The music will unfold a captivating tale, weaving together love triangles and enthralling stories that will leave us enchanted.

Program:
Liszt……………………..Au Lac de Wallenstadt
Szymanowski……….Masques Op. 34, No. 2 “Tantris le Bouffon”, No. 3 “Serenade de Don Juan”
