Product description

A swashbuckling extravaganza of nineteenth century pianism and a veritable contribution to Romantic Revivalism. This, Viner's début recording, presents the operatic paraphrases of the neglected pianistcomposer, Sigismond Thalberg, aristocratic rival of Liszt and innovator of the socalled 'threehand effect'.
Here are some of the very finest of his works; a music of opulent grandeur which draws upon all the heady romantic rhetoric and dramatic narrative of the opera house whilst being sumptuously conceived for the piano. A tour de force of virtuosity and an evocation of an era.
Mark Viner is one of the most exciting young British pianists of his generation. 1st prize winner of the 2012 AlkanZimmerman Competition in Athens, he is also the Chairman of the Alkan Society and is steadily gaining a reputation for his bold championing of unfamiliar pianistic terrain.
Viner established a remarkable combination of personal integrity and artistic maturity.
