BACH/LISZT: Fantasy and Fugue in G Minor¿LISZT: Fantasia and Fugue on "Ad Nos, Ad Salutarem Undam" (transcribed by Busoni) LISZT: Benediction de Dieu dans la Solitude LISZT: Feux Follets (Transcendental Etude No. 5) LISZT: Valse Oubliee No. 1 LISZT: Nuages Gris LISZT: Mephisto Waltz No. 1 ### After Andre Watts plays an all-Liszt program in December, the equally cultivated pianist Garrick Ohlsson offers his own interpretation of the composer through an almost entirely different set of pieces. With a style blending "the gossamer and the athletic" (NY Times), the Chopin International Piano Competition winner begins with Liszt's transcription of Bach's Fantasy and Fugue in G Minor and moves on through the whimsical but demanding Transcendental Etude No. 5 and the first Mephisto Waltz, a sensuous concert favorite. With Ohlsson slated to join the Takács Quartet on the following night, this concert inaugurates a weekend-long visit from an incredibly versatile pianist.
