Consummate artistry from Nikolai Lugansky.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Liszt (Audio CD)
I can't add a great deal more than the other reviewers, but I feel I owe a few words to this CD.
In the past I've let some recordings of Liszt play and not been stunned - until now with this one. In my opinion this is a recording that must be listened to, what I mean is I stop everything and get totally
immersed in the beauty of the music.
On this recording I like to think of Nikolai Lugansky as a artist as he brilliantly creates a picture or story of each piece. Into each piece it's almost as if he's taken a canvas and weaved colour and warm tones into it. Along the way he makes the piano sing as he creates the illusion of a direct link between the music and the listener.
A truly stunning performance of great sensitivity.
