Product description

Product Description

A live recital recording from La Scala, Milan.“A concert dedicated to Italy, but not as a conductor”. Thus Daniel Barenboim introduces his recital at La Scala with a personal and solitary tribute. Liszt's Années de pèlerinage contain some of his most beautiful piano music - a feast for piano lovers.Daniel Barenboim – among the world’s foremost pianists and leading experts on Liszt – gracefully blends the technical and poetic aspects of one of the most rewarding of all Romantic piano works. As an interpreter of Liszt, Barenboim has a passion and colouristic approach to the music that is ideal and offers an evocative rendering of Liszt’s piano works.Recorded live at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 28 May 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Barenboim triumphs despite hair loss 10 Sept. 2010
By David Thierry - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What can I say? Barenboim owns me. Over the years I find I've bought an awful lot of his recordings and now I just let him lead me like I'm his puppy. I have a lot of his Mozart and a lot of his Liszt, Bach and Schumann and that is quite a diverse range. Some might think he's too restrained but I suspect it's that he simply doesn't break a sweat. If you've heard his Well Tempered Clavier you know what I mean. For years I underestimated Liszt and now I discover through many recordings of his music a tremendous talent and intellect. If you like Liszt it's not a hard sell.

3.0 out of 5 stars A historic broadcast, but the pianism is often generic 9 Sept. 2011
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'll make it short but not so sweet. This CD commemorates a quasi-historic event, the first solo recital ever recorded at La Scala, in May, 2007. That's a coup for Barenboim, and he flatters the audience with works of Liszt that all refer to Italy: three Petrarch sonnets and the Dante Sonata from the second book of Annees de pelerinage, the Legende depicting St. Francis of Assisi Preaching to the Birds, and finally some operatic paraphrases from Verdi operas - Aida, Il Trovatore, and Rigoletto. It sounds like a grand time and a rollicking romp with Liszt at his most entertaining and touching.

But Barenboim plays as if he is on a whistle stop between other engagements, which was no doubt true for this multi-tasking former wunderkind; it's his modus vivendi. Instead of being really touching, the Petrach sonnets are delivered with generic gestures of expressiveness. The Dante Sonata is generically phrased, also, and the fortissimos are ear-bashing. Things aren't helped by a pingy piano and unusually hard digital sound that exaggerates the percussive effect of loud passages. The opera paraphrases are tossed off with a nice panache, though; they are probably the best things here. The Gramophone, which thoroughly panned this disc, accused Barenboim of not practicing enough and therefore fudging and smudging some of the tougher left-hand octave passages in the Dante Sonata. To my ear, his technique was not the problem; the lack of personal involvement was.

In all, if this recording sounded better, I think one's enjoyment would increase substantially. As it stands, Barenboim's fans may still be satisfied, although I don't notice the crowd going wild at the end.
