Dear listeners,

It is not entirely common to listen to several different operas at a piano recital in a single evening. In the program “In the Name of the Opera” I will try to do this on March 10 in Litomyšl by performing Liszt’s transcriptions based on operas Lucie of Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti, Faust by Charles Gounod, The Prophet Giacomo Meyerbeer and Norma Vincenzo Bellini. How wonderful it is, that even though I’m not a singer, thanks to Liszt, I can tell these amazing stories.

Yours, Matyáš
