Chopin and Liszt are both indelibly linked with the piano and stand as perhaps the pre-eminent examples of 19th century virtuoso-composers. Chopin is known for his dreamy poeticism whereas Liszt for the dazzling splendour of his technically demanding works.
In 2014, Mariam Batsashvili became the first female in history to win the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition. This programme showcases her virtuosity with works by the two composers alongside music by Mozart and Schubert.
