4.0 out of 5 stars Mesmeric, 16 Jan 2006
This review is from: Liszt: Piano Music (Audio CD)
Although many don't find Liszt to be their cup of tea, few can deny that he pushed piano composition and performance to new hieghts. This collection of 9 discs captures the best of a composer who writes with power, virtuosity and above all beauty. Bolet's playig is magnificent throughout, who would have guessed he recorded this series well into his sixties? His playing truly gives the Mesmeric Bminor sonata justice, unlike so many other performers. Instead of treating Liszt's more technical works as exercises, as many performers do, Bolet brings out the beauty of liszt and treats the virtuosity as a matter of fact instead of the main feature. Well worth a listen even if you are not a Lisztian.
