Concert pianist Kenneth Hamilton returns to the Barber with an intriguing tour of some of the most imaginative and capricious 19th-century pieces for piano, starting with Beethoven’s impatiently eccentric Op. 77 Fantasy, moving through Mendelssohn, Chopin and Liszt, and coming full circle with Schumann’s glorious Fantasy Op. 17, dedicated to Liszt, but secretly brimming with hidden references to Beethoven himself.
