Ian Pace plays Beethoven’s fifth symphony, in the rarely performed transcription for solo piano by Franz Liszt, and Charles Ives’ Concord Sonata.

This concert is the first in a series throughout 2022, in which Pace plans to perform a complete cycle of Beethoven-Liszt symphonies. The programmes will include complimentary works inspired and illuminated by the symphonies, including music by Schumann, Berlioz, Ives and Finnissy, and other music by Beethoven and Liszt.

Besides being a ‘portable’ version of Beethoven’s orchestral masterpieces, these virtuoso transcriptions are a demonstration of Liszt’s exceptional pianism, an insight into the works’ structures and material, and foreground perceived demonic and other macabre elements in the music, which relate to Liszt’s original compositions.


  • Beethoven-Liszt, Symphony No. 5, S. 464/5 (1863-64) (after op. 67, 1803)
  • Charles Ives, Piano Sonata No. 2 “Concord, Mass., 1840-1860” (1916-19, rev. 1920s-40s)
