Liszt loved the music of Chopin, and the two composers even gave joint concerts. This concert complements two of Chopin's most individual pieces with a work by Liszt inspired by Dante. This is the third programme of the BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert series celebrating Chopin, Liszt and Bartók.
Ashley Wass, the only British pianist ever to win the London International Piano Competition, has been described by Gramophone Magazine as 'a thoroughbred who possesses the enviable gift to turn almost anything he plays into pure gold'.
