About

This exceptional concert from the thrilling third edition of Lucerne's Le Piano Symphonique festival features remarkable concerto and duet action at the piano—as well as an extraordinary rare treat for piano lovers: a solo performance by Martha Argerich!

The program kicks off with the phenomenal Yoav Levanon continuing his exploration of the works of Franz Liszt in the devilish Totentanz, alongside maestro Michael Sanderling at the head of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester. Based on the Gregorian plainchant melody Dies irae, the Totentanz translates as a “dance of death” and reflects the composer’s dark fascination with the macabre. Next up is the world premiere of “Hexensabbat” by Marc-André Hamelin—a composition especially commissed for Le Piano Symphonique
