There is no question that young American pianist Andrew von Oeyen is a very talented player. But in playing a number of Liszt works his CD is in a very crowded field. In the Sonata in B Minor alone he is in competition with the likes of Alred Brendel, Krystian Zimerman, Mikhail Pletnev, Nikolai Demidenko, Arnaldo Cohen and Earl Wild, not to speak of the incandescent Martha Argerich. Among the younger pianists he is also in competition with Yuja Wang whose 2009 recording is a must-hear. (And I read today that Marc-André Hamelin's recording of the Sonata has just been released this month. I haven't heard it yet, but can already imagine how wonderful it is likely to be.) That said, I am impressed with von Oeyen's technique and his musicianship. However, when compared to some of the aforementioned artists his playing seems just a little unformed, inchoate. Give him another ten years and his Liszt Sonata will be one to contend with the best ever recorded. And I hope he will record it again then.
As to the rest of the disc, I was particularly impressed with his Verdi/Liszt 'Rigoletto Paraphrase', his 'Vallée d'Obermann' (but no comparison with that of Bolet), and the Third Liebestraum.
The sound of the recording is pretty good but there is some occasional clatter, a real hazard with piano recordings.
In sum, this is a pianist to watch. But none of these performances rises to the top of the list.
