Andrew Atkins is in his third year of study with Jian Liu at Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music. In this performance he plays Etude No. 3 'Un Sospiro' from Trois etudes de concert vy Franz Liszt (1811-1886). Andrew notes that in this piece Liszt creates 'the illusion of the pianist miraculously acquiring a third hand through well written hand crossing.'
The performance was given as part of the 'Bis! Bis!' concert on 15 March 2013, in the NZSM's Friday Lunchtime Series. 'Bis! Bis!' is Italian for 'Again! Again!'. In this concert from the Classical Performance Programme at NZSM, five students who achieved outstanding results in their final assessments of 2012 were invited to give 'repeat performances'.
