    Mendelssohn  Allegro brillant for piano four hands Op. 92
    Schubert  Fantaisie for piano four hands Op. 103 D. 940
    Ravel  La Valse, choreographic poem (version for two pianos)
    Stravinsky  The Rite of Spring (version for two pianos) 

    A “brillant” Opus 92 by Mendelssohn! But this is just a warm-up for Lucas and Arthur Jussen, who promise to offer us an evening of high emotional density and virtuosity. The Fantaisie which Schubert dedicated to Countess Caroline Esterházy in 1828, is metaphysical in a different way and explores the depths of the romantic soul. This makes way for dance. First of all in ¾ time with Ravel’s homage to Strauss’s Austria for Diaghilev’s Ballets russes. According to the composer, it was “a sort of apotheosis of the Viennese waltz, which merged in my mind with a fantastical and fatal whirlwind”. The Dutch performers will then take on the challenge of The Rite of Spring, which is etched in Théâtre des Champs-Elysées memory as it provoked outrage at its premiere on 29 May 1913.
