    A gentle start to the evening with Schumann’s Blumenstück on the theme of love, followed by Brahms’s final piano sonata. Brahms composed this piece when he was only 20 years old, and it is his swansong to the sonata form, but the style and melodic inventiveness which would become his trademark are already well developed here. Goerner then moves onto Liszt, who was undoubtedly the driving force behind the most radical changes to keyboard technique and mastery in the 19th century. Liszt represents a paradigm shift in the history of the piano, as he invented so many approaches, effects, sonorities and structures. He was instrumental in creating the idea of the piano virtuoso.
