Jeremy Denk by Stefan Cohen
Hear inventive treatments of popular themes and homages to great masters in this program. Bizet’s dramatic variations owe much to a classic set by Beethoven, but also contain a quote from Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette. Liszt honored Beethoven with a transcription of his song An die ferne Geliebte, while Schumann’s Beethoven-worship finds its voice in his deeply personal Fantasy. Inspired, in part, by an effort to raise funds for a Beethoven monument, Schumann’s tribute is a first-movement allusion to An die ferne Geliebte.

Schumann’s Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17 

Schumann penned an ardent musical love letter to his beloved Clara in one of the most original and deeply personal piano works of the Romantic era. He pours his yearning and devotion into every phrase, from the impassioned opening theme to a concluding poetic song of longing. The central-movement march is one of the great displays of virtuoso pianism, a dizzying showpiece of dotted rhythms and surging melodies. Not surprisingly, Schumann dedicated his Fantasy to another brilliant composer-pianist, Franz Liszt.
