Dr. Scott Watkins presents a solo recital of music by Franz Liszt, Cesar Franck, and Franz Schubert. The program opens with the poetic Three Petrarch Sonnets by Liszt, followed by the chromatic masterpiece, Prelude, Chorale and Fugue by Franck. Schubert’s epic Sonata in C Major, D. 840, closes the recital. Left incomplete at the composer’s death, the version presented in this program was completed in 1921 by Austrian composer Ernst Krenek. Schubert’s gift for melody and haunting harmonies is apparent in this symphonically conceived work.
