Program Notes/Il Programma

Basata sulla Fontane di Villa d’Este, per pianoforte, di F. Liszt.

Il Giardino. La Grotta di Diana. La Fontana di Nettuno. (The Garden. Diana’s Cave. The Fountain of Neptune.)

The work is a free transcription based on Franz Liszt’s Fountains of Villa d’Este for piano. It was dedicated to the Morgan and inspired by the exhibition “City of the Soul: Rome and the Romantics”, in particular the watercolor The Villa of Maecenas and the Villa d’Este, Tivoli by the English artist Thomas Jones.
