5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Liszt from Kempff, 19 May 2011
This review is from: Liszt: Piano Works - Les Années de Pèlerinage: Italie (excerpts) / Deux Légendes (DG The Originals) (Audio CD)
These recordings, taped in 1974 and now reissued for the composer 200th birth anniversary (1811-2011), are simply stunning. The terms used in the liner notes are absolutely appropriate to describe how Wilhelm Kempff interpreted the Liszt composition in this disc: unforced lyricism, reflective eloquence, serene nobility, quite joy, unalloyed naturalness, nothing is exaggerated, yet nothing is bland, an overwhelming impression of a sublime combination of simplicity and serenity. The remastered sound is natural and warm with the spacious ambiance of the recording location (Beethovensaal in Hanover) beautifully captured. If you love classical piano you simply can't miss this release, even if Liszt is not your preferred composer. Totally recommended!
