Liz has a concert to speak to the most Romantic of souls! The Ulster Orchestra and Kirill Gerstein perform Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto has been described as a ‘concerto for poets’ and is a ground-breaking work by the legendary icon of the piano. It’s a virtuosic partnership between piano and orchestra that is by turns lyrical and introspective, then triumphant and dramatic.
