Adrianna Svitak: Dancing fingers

Teenager Adrianna loves expressing tumultuous emotion musically. At INK, she chose to play ‘Sposalizio’, by Liszt, a piece based on the painting, “The Marriage of the Virgin,” by Raphael. The contrasting moods of the piece are meant to symbolize a wedding scene, with the rise and fall of euphoria and pounding exuberance. The reflective quality in the piece is intended to be thought-provoking with its slow, tranquil passages.
