The Romantic Piano Recital Series concludes with three duets. Gary Beecher, Gabriela Mayer, Donal McHugh, Ciara Moroney and Conor Palliser play Debussy, Schubert and Ligeti.

The final recital in this series features some of the most striking and important music written for piano duet. Debussy’s Petite Suite, composed during his mid-twenties in 1886-89, is full of gorgeous harmonies and charming melodies. A typical example of the Parisian salon style featuring short character pieces and dance movements, this witty and colourful work became so popular that it was later orchestrated by Henri Büsser and enjoyed further success in the concert hall.

By contrast, Schubert’s Fantasie in F minor, written in 1828 during the final year of his life, is a much darker and more complex work, in a similar form to his Wanderer Fantasie with interconnecting movements that also invokes sonata form.
