4.0 out of 5 stars The Aristocrat of Liszt pianists 14 Jun 2011
Although I'm not that familiar with Liszt's output in general, I adore some of his solo piano works, particularly his wonderful Piano Sonata and the exquisite Liebestraume. Here we have Jorge Bolet giving a truly refined performance of this incredibly demanding sonata, together with charming interpretations of smaller piano works - including a sparkling Valse impromptu and the three Liebestraume of course.

I have to admit that I had never heard of the name Jorge Bolet until I found this CD in my local library. Boy was I missing out! If you're only familiar with young, flashy virtuosi like Lang Lang et al I would most definitely give this recording a try. Bolet has an incredible technique but it is allied with sincere musicanship and a beautifully refined touch that is at opposite extremes to the likes of Lang Lang. This is most apparent in the central movement of the sonata, which is given a poignant and deeply felt performance.

I was also touched by his playing in the Valse impromptu, which is a wonderful sparkling little piece. The three Liebestraume are as sensitive and dreamy as you could want (without losing sense of the musical line however). In general I would certainly place Bolet's performance of the Piano Sonata alongside Argerich's DG recording - but it is of a different magnitude to make an interesting comparison. Where Argerich is all fire and extreme passion, Bolet gives us a slightly steadier performance that is just as involved and inspired in its own way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Liszt Playing 31 Dec 2011

Great Liszt Sonata by a Liszt specialist. You can't go wrong with the Bolet/Liszt combo. Seems like he was born to play Liszt.

This CD is another in the series of great Liszt recordings by Jorge Bolet. Very well worth having-his playing is superb.
If you see it,buy it.
