George Radosavljevic
Liszt and the Other Arts

Franz Liszt is well-known as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic Era, as well as possibly the greatest pianist in history. He had enormous influence on many of the composers that directly followed him, setting the stage for revolutionary developments in harmonic language and musical form.  At the same time he admired many other great artists working in music and other art forms, both his contemporaries and his predecessors. This admiration found its way into many of Liszt’s piano compositions. We will investigate and hear works inspired by the painter Raphael, the poet Petrarch, and fellow composers Schumann, and Paganini, including: Sposalizio, Sonetto 104, Widmung and Paganini Etude No.2; and enjoy the interconnection of the arts that is at the core of these wonderful compositions for the piano. 


Pianist George Radosavljevic is well-known in the Chicago area as both soloist and collaborative pianist. Most recently he has been heard in recital at the Cathedral of St. John in Milwaukee, the historic Glessner House Museum and DePaul University in Chicago, as well as in recitals and lecture-recitals given throughout the Chicago area. Mr. Radosavljevic has appeared on the Dame Myra Hess Concert Series, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Chamber Music Series, and in many solo and ensemble concerts broadcast live on WFMT Radio. His playing has been called "polished and elegantly shaped" by the Chicago Tribune and "consistently enchanting" by the Pioneer Press. Mr. Radosavljevic appears as orchestral pianist with the Lake Forest Symphony and is currently on the faculty of the Music Institute of Chicago and DePaul University School of Music, Community Music Division.  Mr. Radosavljevic has also concertized with his son, bass-baritone Leo Radosavljevic, most recently in Tallinn and Pärnu, Estonia, as well as at Ravinia Festival last fall. He is a board member of both the North Shore Music Teachers Association and the Chicago area chapter of the American Liszt Society.  Mr. Radosavljevic holds the degree Master of Music in piano performance from DePaul University as a scholarship student of Dmitry Paperno.
