A few of our favourite love-related music for Valentine’s Day on Wednesday featured image

Valentine’s Day is soon upon us, and that had us at the station talking about some of our favourite music featuring love or romance as a theme. A couple of pianists featured are below, with other performers leading up to Wednesday.

Yvgeny Kissin, piano
Liebestraum No. 3 (“Love dream”) by Franz Liszt
Liszt’s Liebestraum sounds like heartfelt emotions, a typical characteristic of Romantic era music. This performance is likely an encore as a bouquet of flowers have been placed on top of the piano – a fan near the front must have handed them to pianist Evgeny Kissin.

 

Jan Lisiecki, piano
Nocturne in C#- by Frederic Chopin
Chopin is closely associated with the Romantic era – many of his pieces are technically demanding, creating that “heart throb” quality, but when he composed something hushed, subdued – it was extremely intimate. This is Lisieck’s debut at the BBC Proms 2013 when he was 18.
