After its Carnegie Hall triumph, Simon Ghraichy presents in Paris the programme showing Liszt's influence on American music
The young French prodigy with Lebanese and Mexican origins performs his "Liszt and the Americas" programme here in Paris, after Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Simon Ghraichy presents a subtle progression that compares Liszt and his yearning for the Americas with the American composers he influenced across time and space — at once a competitor for his contemporaries and a model for future musicians. "Liszt and the Americas" is an unexpected, sensitive and virtuoso journey.
