The acclaimed pianist and composer Jack Gibbons has been performing his highly popular annual Oxford Summer Piano Series without a break since 1988. Tonight’s programme features the spectacular music of two of the greatest piano virtuosos of the 19th century, romantic icon Franz Liszt and reclusive genius Charles-Valentin Alkan, including Liszt’s ever popular Hungarian Rhapsody no.2, the spectacular six composer Hexaméron (composed jointly by Liszt, Chopin, and others) and Alkan’s legendary Concerto for solo piano, hailed as one of the most exciting and haunting piano works of its century.

Staggering... Gibbons's account becomes the top recommendation here, an Alkan interpreter of exceptional authority… I can safely say that this ranks among the most exhilarating feats of pianism I've heard on disc.” Gramophone
