Gianluca Luisi

‘The disc is played, appropriately, by an Italian pianist, Gianluca Luisi, who gives very literal readings that show an affinity with Liszt in brilliant mode, but is at his best in those passages that thrive on affection. Playing a superb Bösendorfer piano, the recorded sound has the required weight and impact.’ (David’s Review Corner)

THUILLE Sextet, Piano Quintet
Luisi, Chantily Quintet, Gigli Quartet

‘This new recording is excellent in every respect, and the companion work is no less impressive. Pianist Gianluca Luisi is a powerhouse pianist, and both chamber ensembles are finely attuned to the late-Romantic idiom.’ (The New Recordings)
