Haydn Andante & Variations in F minor Un piccolo divertimento Hob.XVII:6
Liszt Variations on the Theme of a Bach Cantata Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen S.180
Ravel La Valse

Domonkos came to audition when a number of the Friends of the Mid-days were invited to join the panel in the audience. Domonkos was a clear audience favourite and we are so pleased to be able to include him this season. He brings both poise and passion to his playing, along with a constant flow of lively musical ideas.

Following the Haydn, Domonkos ‘goes large’ for the remainder of his programme. The intensely chromatic Bach theme is given a progressively more orchestral treatment, culminating in a torrent of notes.

Ravel’s orchestral ballet score La Valse was transcribed by the composer for both one and two pianos, and there are probably as many notes for one pianist as there are for two! Far more than a piano reduction, it will make a spectacularly exciting end to this recital.
