Stars at the Rhine— Cocktail Classique
The focus of the Stars at the Rhine Festival Academy is the promotion of young talents and of the piano—an instrument that has the capacity “to sum up and concentrate all of art”, to quote Franz Liszt. The goal is to explore this 88-key universe and take all piano lovers on an unforgettable journey through this instrument’s spectacular realm, from the grandeur of a piano concerto to the subtleties of a solo or chamber music recital and the intimate atmosphere of an evening of song.
For this concert, works by N. Paganini, C. Saint-Saëns, H. Villa-Lobos, B. Bartók, and O. Messiaen will be performed in the Foyer of the Stadtcasino Basel.
Admission is free.
