Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, trans. Alkan Motet from Thamos, King in Egypt and Piano Concerto in D minor, K. 466Charles Valentin Alkan Don Juan Fantaisie, Op. 26, Nocturne in B major, Op. 22, and 3 Petites FantaisiesThis program features two rarely heard transcriptions by Charles Valentin Alkan (1813â€“1888) of Mozarts works: the Motet from the incidental music to Thamos, King in Egypt and the Piano Concerto in D minor K. 466, which, along with Beethovens C minor Concerto, Op. 37, was a favored item in the repertoire of pianists during the Romantic movement due to its underlying pathos. Alkans original cadenzas for the outer movements provide a unique commentary and evidence his peculiar humor. William Wellborn and JosÃ© LÃ³pez, respective Presidents of American Liszt Society chapters in the Bay area and South Florida, join hands in the Bay Area Premiere of Alkans four-handed Don Juan Fantaisie, Op. 26, which uses the famous aria Finch han dal vino from Mozarts Don Giovanni as a finale. The program also includes Alkan’s Nocturne in B major, Op. 22 along with his rarely played 3 Petites Fantaisies. For more information please visit joselopezpiano.com and williamwellborn.com.
