About this Recording

Piano Recital: Yu, Avan - LISZT, F.: Schubert Song Transcriptions

Liszt had a particular affection for the music of Schubert whom he considered to be “the most poetic musician who ever lived”. Ordered according to key relationships rather than the narrative content of the verse, his transcriptions of Schubert’s two great song cycles, Winterreise and Schwanengesang are outstanding examples of the genre and formed a popular part of his concert programmes during his years as a travelling virtuoso. Avan Yu, one of Canada’s most exciting pianists, won the gold medal at the Canadian Chopin Competition at the age of seventeen.
