Artistic Fusion in the Piano Concert: The Piano Recital and Concepts of Artistic Synergy: Includes two multimedia projects: Picturing Rachmaninoff & Picturing Ravel

Abstract This paper investigates the origins of the piano recital as invented by Franz Liszt, presents varying strategies for program design, and compares Liszt's application of the format with current trends. In addition it examines the concepts of program music, musical ekphrasis, and Gesamtkunstwerk and proposes a new multimedia piano concert format in which music combines with the mediums of literature and the visual arts; Picturing Rachmaninoff, and Picturing Ravel provide two recent examples of this format.
