Luca Lione – the great communicator for Roma 3 Young Artist Series
Luca Lione playing for Rome University in their splendid new venue, an important rationalist palace which is now part of INPS social services.
The new venue for Roma Tre Orchestra to add to the Teatro Palladium and historic Teatro Torlonia. A programme that combined Beethoven with Schumann and Granados with Ginastera. Schumann had written his fantasy and given it to Liszt to create funds for a monument to Beethoven in his home city of Bonn. It is above all a deep lament for the love of his life Clara Wieck from whom he had been isolated by her wicked father …the piano teacher of both Clara and Robert.
The Andante Favori, on the other hand, was written by Beethoven for his beloved Countess Josephine Brunsvik whose family considered Beethoven a ‘commoner’ whom she could never contemplate in marriage!
