Absolute Perfection 10 Mar. 2011
By Don in Australia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have several recordings of Liszt's Transcriptions of Schubert's Songs but I have never heard anything like the piano playing in this one. Valerie Tryon has a technique & touch like no other, as well as a beauty of artistic expression I find difficult to describe. The selection of songs here rank amongst Schubert's best. This CD takes my breath away, sends shivers up the spine & brings tears to the eyes.
For anyone who loves Schubert Lieder, these Liszt Transcriptions will provide a most rewarding & spiritually uplifting musical experience. I guess one word could sum it up for me. Sublime.

Disappointing, shallow interpretations 21 Nov. 2012
By mondokoko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had previously purchased Naxos' first volume of Liszt's Schubert song transcriptions (Naxos 8.553062) -- played exquisitely by Russian pianist Oxana Yablonskaya (a former member of the Juilliard piano faculty for 3 decades). After reading three glowing reviews of Ms. Tryon's playing on this page, I bought this album and looked forward to it with eager anticipation. I am sorry to say that I was disappointed.

Comparisons are odious - so goes the cliche'. But they are inevitable, especially when there is such a chasm of interpretive sensitivity as is evident between Ms. Tryon's effort and the profundity of Ms. Yablonskaya's achievement.

It is best illustrated by one piece that is duplicated in both albums: "Der Muller und der Bach." This happens to be the penultimate song in Schubert's Schone Mullerin cycle, and it is a profound song of lost love and despair, culminating in suicide. Schubert's melody and accompaniment are alive to every nuance and shading of Wilhelm Muller's tragic text; the song is a masterpiece. Liszt was likewise attuned to the depth of emotion Schubert evoked, and created a transcription that is incredibly moving -- when projected by an artist of sensitivity and intelligence. Compare the two versions. Yablonskaya's strong but gentle playing is rooted in the meaning of the text and will bring a lump to your throat; Tryon rushes through her performance without seeming to care about the meaning of the text, without any sense of tragedy or even life-experience. The difference is stark. Yablonskaya will touch your heart; Tryon's version, while technically solid, sounds antiseptic, cold and immature, even light-hearted. Hear it for yourself.

The much-maligned Liszt has too often been the victim of the technically proficient but interpretively uncaring pianist. In Liszt, technic is not an end in itself -- it is the means to a transcendent experience for both the performer and the audience, an experience which can be reached in no other way. Yablonskaya seems to understand this; I do not think Tryon sees things the same way. Another way to put this is that a major demand of Romantic piano literature (and Liszt in particular) is the active expression of a deeply feeling, artistic soul. (This is not mere personal passion, but more a spiritual identification with the music, rooted in the experience the composer wishes to convey.) Among too many contemporary music schools (and critics), the personal, transcendent element has become politically incorrect, in the mistaken belief that it is automatically self-indulgent, that it distorts the composer's intention. Of course it is, when the performer is uninformed, undisciplined, and more concerned with himself than the music. But when an performing artist has fully probed the meaning of the music and placed his emotion at the music's service, it is a different matter. Then, it is not longer cheap and self-aggrandizing; it becomes illuminating, intimate, and revelatory.

If you love the Liszt transcriptions of Schubert's lieder as I do, go to Amazon's mp3 page and sample Oxana Yablonskaya's interpretations. You'll find them deep, personal and rewarding.
Superb music! 12 May 2010
By Yan Barcelo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This record in my mind is a hit. Since I am not a great fan of the lied, this pianistic rendering of Schubert's songs delights me. It combines the best of two composers: Schubert's unequaled sense of melody and Liszt's genius of the piano and flair for drama. The result is outstanding and the absence of any recording of these transcriptions was a shame - which Naxos has erased. Valerie Tryon is an excellent pianist, though I have no comparison with any other player for this repertoire. But she serves the music with sensitivity and intelligence; and the recording is impeccable, close enough to the piano, but with a good sense of space.

Best Piano Music on the Planet 16 Mar. 2007
By Madstork - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like solo classical piano music, you must have this CD. The "marriage" of Scubert and Liszt is nothing less than transcendental. A well-engineered recording of great performances.
