BERLIOZ Harold en Italie excerpts (transcribed by LISZT for viola and piano)

SCHUMANN String Quartet No.1 in A minor Op.41 No.1

Romantic ideals lie at the heart of this programme. Berlioz’s Harold in Italy was inspired by Lord Byron’s poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage; such was Liszt’s passionate admiration for the work that, despite misgivings, Berlioz allowed him to prepare this transcription. Schumann’s lyrical fist string quartet reflects the fascination for literature he shared with so many artists and musicians of his generation.

Presented by Music in the Round, as part of Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2018
