The Lost Chord: October 20 - A Fistful of Mephistos
As an artist of lofty ideals, yet all too aware of his feet of clay, Franz Liszt readily identified with the Romantic paradox of Faust. The diabolical informs a certain segment of his piano music. Tune in for a selection from the “Mephisto Waltzes,” a “Mephisto Polka,” the “Czardas Macabre,” and two operatic paraphrases, on “Robert le Diable” (a “valse infernale”) and Gounod’s “Faust.” The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it, this Sunday at 10 pm.
