Benjamin Grosvenor

The Benjamin Grosvenor recital tonight had included the following:

KAPUSTIN - Concert Study No. 6 -Pastoral
Concert Study No. 7 - Intermezzo
Concert Study No. 3 - Toccatina

LISZT - Piano Sonata in B minor, S.178

CHOPIN - Nocturne in F-sharp major, Op. 15 No. 2
Scherzo No. 3, Op. 39
Nocturne in C-sharp minor, Op. post.

RAVEL - Gaspard de la Nuit

I had finally heard Liszt's Sonata in B minor live, one of my favourites. The performance was engrossing.

However, I don't know, I don't find tonight's programme as engrossing as the first two nights. My sister was in agreement with that sentiment. I guess I didn't care for the Kasputin pieces which I found to be forgettable. Lyn said that she didn't attend tonight's, I thought she didn't miss much.
