5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Graham Mummery TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 29 Aug. 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
On the cover of this CD there is a quote from Kahtia Buniatishvili saying that her "first recording would have to be a portrait of Liszt. Only he would enable me to present as a unity the many aspects of my soul."

To English ears, I suspect this may sound self-indulgent. I remember a review in one newspaper saying that surely thing to do was to present the composer's soul. This is of course the approach pianists like Alfred Brendel (himself, a great Liszt interpreter incidentally) also espouse. It's an admirable aim. But Liszt, from reports, may have been more of a virtuoso like Horrowitz or Argerich. Thus Ms Buniatishvili might argue that she is following Liszt's spirit more closely.

The truth of course is that Liszt is bigger than all of them. Though he wrote pieces meant to show off the piano and his technique, there are also those meant to be reflective as well. And possibly some that show both sides.

This never more so than in the great B-minor Sonata on this disk. This is probably the work of Liszt I love and know best. It has sufficient spiritual content to be of interest to the likes of Barenboim or Brendel, as well as the virtuoso content for Argerich and Horowitz to show off their technique. Of the two poles, Ms. Buniatishvili fits more into the latter. Her technique is formidable. She is, perhaps, better in the virtuoso sections than the reflective ones (where recordings by some of the above have the edge), but I suspect this will come in time. This is still a performance to treasure, and enjoy over repeated listening.

I have not the slightest reservation about her rendition of the "Liebestraum." This is gorgeous, sensual and dreamy. Music to swoon into.

I purchased this CD following feedback from previous purchasers. I had to agree with all their comments. This girl has immense talent and the CD's she has produced thus far are three of my favourite purchases. A worthy 5 stars. I can thoroughly recommend her recordings and would give 6 stars if available!

EXCELLENT! 19 Mar. 2015

On this CD is a really fine rendition of the sonata. It's very dramatic and very worth having - even in a collection with many verions of this work.
