January 4, 2019

LISZT, F.: 12 Études d'exécution transcendante / La Leggierezza / Rigoletto: Paraphrase de concert
Boris Giltburg
8.573981

Franz Liszt was one of music history’s first superstars, whose stunning technique and charismatic stage presence facilitated his development of the solo piano concert format. This release puts his 12 Transcendental Studies centre stage, where they share the spotlight with award-winning pianist Boris Giltburg, an emerging superstar in his own right whose pianism clothes Liszt’s music with impeccable artistry. While many series of studies succeed in developing technique, they are rarely very exciting musically. Liszt’s works, however, embody rich, alluring worlds that can be accessed only by a performer with outstanding technical expertise and penetrating musical vision. Raymond Bisha presents Boris Giltburg’s latest Naxos release.
