When you think of musical artists who can fill huge arenas to the rafters today, you may not immediately think of classical composer Franz Liszt. Watch and listen as a vast stadium audience listen in rapt attention to this beautifully sensitive performance of one of his best known works.
HAVASI, who has built a successful career and a huge fan base solely from performances of his own compositions is here - in a rare departure from his usual practice - performing a work by one of the great classical masters whom he revers.
Liszt’s ‘Dream of Love’ (Liebestraum, No. 3) is a masterpiece of romantic yearning. It encapsulates the special quality in classical works which makes them resonate even today: the toughness at the heart of passion in which expressive sensitivity is achieved through discipline and a thorough knowledge of rigorous musical rules.
