Kit Armstrong performs Liszt
Le Piano Symphonique Festival 2024
Thank you for your understanding.
As part of of the thrilling third edition of Lucerne's Le Piano Symphonique festival, the multi-talented Kit Armstrong demonstrates his incredible skill on the organ (to match his virtuosic pianism) in Liszt’s Fantasia and Fugue on the Chorale “Ad nos, ad salutarem undam”. Composed in 1848, it was the first of Liszt’s organ works and was inspired by Giacomo Meyerbeer’s opera Le prophète. The “Ad nos, ad salutarem undam” is the call to repentance and revolution that the trio of Anabaptists sing in Act I of the opera—a theme that is cleverly transformed and developed by Liszt throughout the duration of his work.
