This year for her Printempo concert, Lusi Xie invites us on a journey through the ages with works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Poulenc.
The majestic piano will be the focal point of the upcoming concert at the Fondation des Etats-Unis. The audience will be transported through different musical eras and styles. The first stop will be Beethoven’s Sonata Opus 26 which is bold and intense and is most well known today as a famous funeral march. The next stop is Schumann’s Opus 2 “Papillons” which will surely win over the audience with its enchanting melody. Finally, the audience will experience Poulenc’s Three Pieces for Piano which evokes a world of imagination and memories. Printempo will be a concert for music and piano lovers, where each note will take the audience closer towards infinity.
