Music/Classic  With Alexander Ullman at the piano and Hans Graf on the conductor’s podium, this evening takes us to a world of sweeping fairy tales, fizzing virtuosity and gripping drama. With works by composers ranging from Franz Liszt to the early modernism of Alexander Zemlinsky, you can luxuriate splendidly in romantic opulence. Liszt’s Concerto in E flat major crams magnificent pianistic brilliance into a mini-symphony, and his last symphonic poem Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe (From the Cradle to the Grave) lets the struggles of a lifetime flash before us. It’s complemented by the Andersen fairy tale The Mermaid as an orchestral fantasia in three movements, originally planned by Zemlinsky as a symphony of death: a gripping story without words.
