LANG LANG / LISZT MY PIANO HERO
Sony classical, 2011
Franz Liszt (1811-1886) was the first international musical superstar, touring Europe in his teens, and was the Parisian friend of Chopin, Berlioz, Hugo, Dumas, Balzac, Heine and Paganini. A genius and an exceptional showman, a womanizer, he played for the masses and for royalty, inventing the piano concert as we know it today. He was a revolutionary composer, creating new, often technically demanding means of expression in piano music and new forms in orchestral music. Play tracks 3, 5 or 9 to melt your audience, tracks 2, 8, 10 or 12 to dazzle them.
1. (3:05) Romance "O Pourquoi Donc", E Minor, S 169. Sweet melody.
2. *(4:47) La Campanella, G# Minor, From Grandes Etudes De Paganini, S 141/3. The high bells sound over a dancing melody.
3. *(4:19) Consolation No. 3 In Db Major, S 172/3. Beautiful song lifts the heart from its sadness.
4. (3:58) Grand Galop Chromatique In Eb Major, S 219. Antic, spirited play by a talented jester, ever more dramatic
5. * (4:53) Liebestraum No. 3 In Ab Major, S 541/3. Who has not heard this dream of love and been transported?
6. (7:19) Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 In Db Major, S 541/3. Aristocratic Hungarian men perform a national dance, earning our respect, first for their forcefulness, then for their delicacy
7. *(5:26) Un Sospiro In Db Major, From Trois Etudes De Concert, S 144/3. A lovely melody sighs over spectacular arpeggio harmonies, tho’ yours truly prefers a more tender rendition.
8. *(5:43) Hungarian Rhapsody No. 15 In A Minor, "Rakoczy March," S 244/15. A national dance, familiar from many movies; song with drama galore, nimble dance atop castle walls.
9. *(6:31) Ave Maria (Schubert), S 558/12. A heart-rending song with accompaniment by a piano become first noble chorus then heavenly choir and orchestra.
