Ras i curt
Què ens hi trobarem?
Després del seu debut a Vilabertran el 2021 interpretant les Variacions Goldberg, Kit Armstrong torna a la Schubertíada amb un programa íntegrament dedicat a Franz Liszt que comença amb una obra poc habitual als escenaris, el Tercer any de pelegrinatge.
L'obra destacada
Les vint-i-sis peces compostes al llarg de quaranta anys que formen els Anys de pelegrinatge constitueixen, probablement, l'obra més transcendent de Franz Liszt. El Tercer any, que recull els seus últims anys compositius, commou pel seu caràcter auster i contemplatiu.
