I had the opportunity to see Italian pianist, Mariangela Vacatello perform at Christ Church Cathedral during MusicFest Vancouver on August 10th, and she was sensational.
Ms. Vacatello is a powerful musician that excels passion in her performance. A Liszt specialist, she chose a spectacular selection of his works for her Canadian debut. In celebrating the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birthday, Mariangela Vacatello performed two of his works including a Sonata in B minor, and the other, three movements from 12 Transcendental Etudes. I often like to sit close for piano recitals and was unlucky this time around as it was a full house and I was seated close to the rear.
