ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The world of Franz Liszt's music is a world I like to wander through. From my early beginnings as a pianist, his music has stimulated my imagination. I know my way around it like I know my home and yet find myself constantly surprised by how much more there is to discover. This refers not so much to the notes themselves but more to the world that he has created just behind the notes – it is these that give the music its most expressive qualities.

Liszt & the Great Italians manages to perfectly capture a number of themes within Italian culture and turn them into music. There is, for instance, the aching love poetry of Petarch; those sonnets from the fourteenth century which, even to this day, have lost nothing of their original emotional force. Or the folklore of Venice and Naples with their gondola songs and dances. From religious sobriety to the virtuosity of Verdi’s operas, Liszt’s music opens all doors.

The CD is accompanied by a unique book of still lifes photographed by Dik Nicolai. Liszt’s music translated into images.

Inspiration, interpretation.
