Biography

Krystian Zimerman comes from a family with rich music-making traditions. Musicians would meet almost daily in his home to play various works, mostly chamber music. These performances afforded Mr. Zimerman a most intimate, natural, everyday contact with live music and provided an early impetus to his musical career. He made his first steps in music under his father's supervision, and at the ... Read more in Amazon's Krystian Zimerman Store

The Eternal Liszt 22 Nov. 2013
By ConTroppo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Liszt has an interesting reputation of being the mindless virtuoso with no soul, sometimes his music sounds that way, but people with this idea should here the mature Liszt. Franz increasingly became a genius composer, abandoning meaningless exploration of virtuosity and turning towards ingenuous landscapes that only he could imagine up with those truly unique fingers. The relativity of this explanation is brought into view upon viewing the solo sections on disc two. These piano pieces are truly unique in the repertoire of the piano, myself being a composer, I am in great debt to the genius of Liszt for delivering such gems. Of course, people will think I'm crazy to talk of the non-virtuosic Liszt when you see the infamous sonata appear in the track listing. It's virtuosity I see a purpose for, Liszt is venturing into the vast worlds of the unconscious. Even the good Liszt requires a special performer, I hate listening to versions where the tone is ugly and muddy. Zimerman sculpts this sonata quite wonderfully.

The first disc is the more typical Liszt, racing around the keyboard looking for the secrets to the beginning of the universe. I can hear these concerto by certain performers and be completely unmoved.
I've never heard these concertos sound this way, Zimerman has colour screaming through each note and bristling excitement in the air.
Krystian is not just playing right notes much to an audiences amusement as with many people who play this concerto, he is conveying ideas with each passage of notes.

If your going to make judgments about Franz Liszt at least hear this album first, like it or not this is as well as Liszt can be played.
