LISZT and the CROSS, Music as Sacrament in the B Minor Sonata,a lecture recital by PAUL BARNES
Dr. Barnes inspiration by the mystical interplay between music and theology results in a CD that offers a revealing perspective of both the physical and the spiritual worlds that are uniquely encountered through the mediation of music. The inspiration of Ancient Greek Orthodox Icons and Byzantine chant carries over into his very personal interpretation of Liszt's B minor Sonata. Dr. Barnes' performances of his unique lecture/recitals have brought him international acclaim.
Included on the disc is POTIRION SOTIRIU - Ps. 116(LXX115)
The cup of salvation I will receive, and call upon the name of the Lord.
This unique work, composed especially for Dr. Barnes by Victoria Bond, combines vocal chant of the Greek Orthodox Church with a piano version of the chant. The cross motif that Liszt uses in his B minor Sonata and other compositions (noteably Via Crucis) is used extensively in this chant. This composition truly exemplifies the mystical mingling of the ancient with the present.
Dr.Barnes captures the magic that makes a performance of this Sonata a "transcendental" experience both for Audience and Performer -- Mary Kay Kapustka, Denver Center for Liszt Studies, Dec. 2003
