About the Artist

Since Bach, fantasy freed the imaginations of composers, performers, and audiences with dramatic themes and moody flourishes. Carnegie and Wigmore Hall veteran pianist Geoffrey Duce frolics through those sprightly fields, journeying through the junior Bachs and the sublime lyricism of Franz Schubert, as well as exploring the leaping, syncopated energy of British composer John McCabe. The program concludes with the heroic narratives and Hungarian overtones of four rhapsodies by Ernő Dohnányi, who would shape the musicality of Chicago Symphony icons Georg Solti and Fritz Reiner.
