A Double-Billing of Paganini

Pianist Konstantin Lifschitz
Pianist Konstantin Lifschitz

Pianist Konstantin Lifschitz, 29, is an introspective young man. He says he wants his music to portray "medieval architectonics, the frenzy and immobility of the Japanese theatre, lyrical urbanity, and a pantheistic perception of the earth's nature with all its hills, brooks, vineyards, fields and seas." All that and pure music, too. He's in NPR's Studio 4A to play a Liszt transcription of Paganini's Caprice No. 1. Violinist Christian Tetzlaff follows with the Paganini original.
