Product Description

“The hottest Classical artist on the classical music planet”, as described by The New York Times, is back with his second recording for Sony Classical, which is devoted to his very own piano hero - Franz Liszt.
On this album, together with the Vienna Philharmonic and Valery Gergiev, Lang Lang plays Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1 as well as a selection of some of the most commercial, famous, virtuosic and beautiful solo pieces by Franz Liszt such as La Campanella, Liebestraum and Hungarian Rhapsody Nr 6, Consolation etc.
His 200th anniversary being October 22, 2011, Franz Liszt is commonly regarded as the first pop star in music history. A touring piano virtuoso himself, Franz Liszt composed some of the most famous and virtuosic pieces ever written for the instrument.

I heard one track of this album on Classic FM - namely the "Campanella" and I was so impressed by Lang Lang's interpretation that I was determined to purchase it. When it arrived, I sat down straight away and listened right through. What a joy to hear the clarity of the recording. It is so obvious that the artist has a great empathy and understanding of Franz Liszt. Would that all my albums sounded this way. Even the bonus DVD is a pleasure to watch and hear. Can't wait to hear more of Lang Lang.

OK, so he and it are a bit poppy but who cares. He has re-kindled a small fire in me for the classics. Much like Nigel Kennedy's and his Four Seasons recording. It really moved me and I enjoy it over and over again

The disc was released in 2011 to celebrate the bicentenary of Liszt's birth. The thirteen track disc comes with a bonus thirteen minute DVD showing Lang Lang performing Liszt, his piano hero.

The fascination and admiration of Lang Lang for Liszt is contagious apparently elicited by the young pianist's masterly rendition of the composer's best and best known works present on the disc. Listening to the concluding piano concerto, the words 'sparkling' and 'shining' came spontaneously to mind.

A beauty of the disc is the alternation of the lyrical and the poetic with the virtuosic and the exuberant but invariably masterly in their amazing dexterity, expressive power, and mood transition.

The disc commences with Romance 'O pourqoi donc', an appropriately romantic piece; it is followed by 'La campanella' from Grandes Etudes de Paganini with all its intricacy, virtuosity, and pyrotechnics; then follows Consolation No.3, one of the most beautiful, lyrical, poetic, well known, and beloved works in the piano literature; then follows the exuberant Grand Galop chromatique; then Liebestraum no.3, another romantic and lyrical piece; then follows the tempestuous Hungarian Rhapsody, a favorite of the artist; then 'Un sospiro' again a romantic, poetic piece; followed by the 'Rakoczy March' with all its highly virtuosic setting; the disc concludes with the stunning Piano Concerto No.1.

A uniquely beautiful disc to treasure in your collection.

The music and playing are excellent. However I find the digitallity of the record too obvious and a little bright. Knowing what I know know I would have gone for the CD.

My husband is a great fan of Lang Lang. This cd did not disappoint him. It arrived very quickly which was lucky as it was a last minute birthday idea. Would recommend.
