Bachelor eindauditie van Alexandra Kaptein, studente piano Klassieke Muziek
Today I will perform two grand Sonatas; one being a classical Sonata, dedicated to J. Haydn, cheerfully brilliant, vigorously rhythmic yet so lyrical and intimate in its empathy, L. v. Beethoven Piano Sonata Op. 2, No. 3 in C major.
The second one being the utter most romantic Sonata, F. Liszt: Piano Sonata in B minor, S. 178. This Sonata is about the divine and the diabolical; conflicts within your own personality. While its distinct movements are rolled into one, the entire work is encompassed within an overarching sonata form — exposition, development, and recapitulation; a sonata within a sonata, which is part of the work's uniqueness. The first page contains three motive ideas that provide the basis for nearly all that follows, with the ideas being transformed throughout.There are moments of calm contemplation, shot through with soaring climaxes and intense agitation, the surprising harmonies emphasising the protagonist’s confused state of mind.
These particular pieces have guided me through a very difficult time and it means the world to me. Liszt has become one of my favourite composers because his music is so honest, so true and real that it touches my soul in a very special way. He connects emotions with literature, religion with art and soul with music. It is about love, pain and yet enjoyment, maybe the only thing that truly holds this world and people together.
