One of Vetta’s missions is to provide opportunities for growth to emerging professional musicians. Pianist Talisa Blackman is 26 years of age and has performed with some of the top orchestras from North America and Russia. The repertoire has been chosen with Talisa’s lyrical and flexible playing in mind. The wistful and rhapsodic Phantasie is a youthful work, written by Bridge for a competition in London in 1905, the Bloch Nocturnes are evocative sketches of dream-like states, from bliss to nightmarish, and the Dumky Trio is based on Slavic folk songs or “Dumky” that alternate in character between sadness and gaiety.
