Franz Liszt's monumental output is a lifelong measuring stick for pianists. This body of work, by the composer/performer who arguably invented the modern conception of the "virtuoso," brings together all of NEC's piano majors, along with Preparatory students, in a series of seven bicentennial concerts, under the direction of NEC piano chair Bruce Brubaker.

Additional performers to be announced.
