The Amherst College Department of Music presents Sola, an honors thesis in piano performance by Faith Wen ’20. The concert is free and open to the public; seating is by general admission.
Sola is a contemplation on solitude—on the comfort, assurance, satisfaction, hope, joy, even triumph that solitude can hold when we find meaning in something beyond ourselves. Drawing on her faith, Wen hopes to use the voices of Ravel, Liszt and Beethoven to express that impossible truth: that in solitude can be found an other; that the invisible is more real than the visible.
Ravel – Sonatine
Liszt – Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude
Beethoven – Sonata No. 31, Op. 110 in A-flat Major
