Masterwork Series: Rare Two-Piano Fantasy at Chapman Cultural Center @ Chapman Cultural Center
Aug 29 @ 7:00 pm

piano fantasy3rd Annual World Masterwork Series Benefit Concert  for the Music Foundation of Spartanburg

This Rare Two-Piano Fantasy is performed by pianists Dr. John Cobb and Christopher Tavernier.  You will hear two of the most spectacular two-piano compositions ever written, Reminiscences of Don Juan from Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Reminiscences of Norma by Bellini and much more.  It begins as Franz Liszt creates the dreams of floating, falling and sweet intoxication.  From piano music, to sacred choral and orchestral music, he leads us into the realm of the two greatest opera fantasies for two pianos ever created.  So let the dreams begin!  Savor each sensation, and let your darker side give in to the power of the music of “A Night at the Opera”

Franz Liszt

A Night at the Opera – A Very Rare Two-Piano Fantasy

Operas are stories sung and told with music.  Operatic fantasies present the stories condensed and on the piano, but with all the emotions intact.  The visuals projected onto suspended screens present elements of the story that belong with the music being played.  And for those who like to watch pianists’ hands, there is also a screen over each piano showing the pianist’s hands from above!

Franz Liszt created only two fantasies on popular operas to be played on two pianos.  They are lush, beautiful, exciting works, yet they are rarely played, and as far as we know they have never been performed together in public, one right after the other.  That makes this performance an opportunity of a lifetime.

Our fantasy begins as Liszt creates the dreams of floating, falling and sweet intoxication.  From piano music, to sacred choral and orchestral music, he leads us into the realm of the two greatest opera fantasies for two pianos ever created.  So let the dreams begin!  Savor each sensation, and let your darker side give in to the power of the music of “A Night at the Opera.”

To set the stage for operatic opulence, the pianists will start the program by presenting a prelude of flavors, weaving together some of Liszt’s most beautiful and powerful solo piano pieces.  They will alternate in memorable performances of keynote works that made Liszt the most famous pianist in the world, ending with the notorious Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, arranged exclusively for two pianos!

Asheville Lyric Opera Presents Revival of ‘The Magic Flute’ @ Diana Wortham Theatre
Apr 8 @ 8:00 pm

magic flute asheville

Asheville Lyric Opera is proud to present the revival of its national award winning production of ““The Magic Flute”.” This production will feature a distinguished cast of performers bringing their talent to Asheville from all across the U.S. Witness this amazing night of excitement as we journey through the magic of Mozart’s masterpiece.

Shows are April 8 at 8 p.m. and April 10 at 3 p.m. at the Diana Wortham Theatre, 2 South Pack Square in Asheville. Call the Box Office at (828) 257-4530 or visit http://www.dwtheatre.com/.

A celebration of true love conquering all, “The Magic Flute”, a singspiel that includes both singing and spoken dialogue, transports us into an enchanted world where good faces the forces of dark. The blend of high comedy and serious drama is packed with exquisite singing and stage wizardry. This opera, which premiered in 1791, tells the story of Prince Tamino who must save Princess Pamina from her evil mother, the queen. To help him on his quest he is given a magic flute. With its help and the companionship of his jovial friend, Papageno, the prince overcomes the trials of Silence, Patience and Courage and thereby wins the hand of Princess Pamina. The real meaning of the opera lies in its many symbols of freemasonry and the Enlightenment, portraying the education of mankind, progressing from chaos (the serpent) through religious superstition (the Queen and Ladies) to rationalistic enlightenment (Sarastro and Priests).
