Franz Liszt: Pianist, Composer, Conductor and Teacher (1811-1886)
Join Vashon resident, musician and musicologist, Michael Tracy for a multi-media presentation on Franz Liszt that includes a lecture, slide show and a live piano performance.
In just 10 years of touring Franz Liszt would be the first pianist to play a concert from memory, play a solo recital, champion other composers works and amass a fortune from concertizing, a first in the history of music.
Michael will be joined by Mark Salman at the piano.
Mark Salman has been hailed as a “heroic virtuoso”, and “a dazzling performer”. He performed in ‘A Chopin Celebration’ – a series of three recitals celebrating the composer’s 200th birthday in 2010, and five recitals in honor of Liszt 200th birthday in 2011. Marc recently released a recording of the late Schubert sonatas and “Chopin’s Intimate Art: the Mazurkas”.
Mark Salman, a native of Connecticut, began his studies at age eight and made his first recital debut at eleven. A graduate of The Julliard School, Mark also studied at MIT for two years concentrating on chamber music and composition. Mark lives and teaches in Seattle.
