Ann Cummings, pianist

“Who Says Love Isn’t Dangerous?”

Local pianist Ann Cummings of INSIDE the MUSIC performs in the opening concert in the 2016/2017 season of the Haller Lake Music Series – “Who Says Love Isn’t Dangerous?” – featuring selected works by Franz Liszt, a composer from the 19th century known for his virtuosic abilities as a pianist and for his dramatic compositions from the Romantic era of classical music. Cummings celebrates his abilities as a composer by programming works for a performance that recreates the experience of transcendence. Adding to the drama, Cummings will wear different masks for each musical selection accompanied with brief commentary for each piece. On the program: MAZEPPA (Etudes d’execution transcendente); VIVO (Grandes Etudes de Paganini); ANDANTE LAGRIMOSO (Harmonies Poetiques); MISERERE (Harmonies Poetiques); PENSEE DES MORTS (Harmonies Poetiques); CZARDAS MACABRE; WIEGENLIED; MAZEPPA CODA and BALLAD II.
