Pascal Rogé (piano)


Two pupils of the great Julius Katchen are featured in the piano music of Liszt on this 2CD set. Pascal Rogé was eighteen years old when he recorded the Liszt Piano Sonata, Mazeppa, Vallée d’Obermann and the third Liebestraum in London in December, 1969. It was during the 1967 International Competition Georges Enesco that Rogé was first discovered. He was sixteen, the only Frenchman to reach the finals, and he won a prize even though he was the youngest competitor. In Paris, where he was unanimously awarded First Prize for the Piano at the Conservatoire (in Lucette Descaves’s class) when he gave his first recital, Le Figaro wrote: ‘… Here is an exceptional personality and already much more than a hope: a gold mine’. The International Herald Tribune praised him with these words: ‘… his remarkable technical prowess, but also style and ability to draw his audience into his line of focus and hold it there. Such a quality is the sign of a true artist.’ Twelve years later, in 1980, he made another Liszt recording for Decca, this time of the Italian volume of Années de Pèlerinage. Both recordings are issued as part of this 2CD set, completed with Liszt recordings of both flamboyant pieces – the transcendental study Wilde Jagd, the second Legend ‘St. Francis of Paul walking on the waves’ – as well as the intimate, almost experimental late works. Born in Calcutta, India, of Viennese-Jewish parents, raised in considerable poverty, Jean-Rodolphe Kars was much admired in pianistic circles. Although his upbringing had been that of a secular Jew, he converted, in 1976, to Catholicism and was baptised in 1977. Mysteriously, in 1981, he put an end to his career as a pianist, entering the priesthood in 1986. All these recordings appear internationally on Decca CD for the first time.

“the compelling centre of this feast is the playing of the 18-year-old Pascal Roge. Mature, lyrical, symphonic and pianistically profound, his Sonata is a marvel.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 *****

“There are so many super-pianists about nowadays that no boy or girl is likely to make the grade without being able to rattle off Liszt's B minor Sonata faultlessly at the age of 18. The point is how well? Pascal Rogé was 18 when he made this record last December: he can not only play this transcendentally difficult sonata, he gives it one of the most intelligent and Sensitive interpretations anybody could hope to hear.” Gramophone Magazine

“instead of storming classical heights with jejune interpretations, [this recital disc] is content to offer evidence of pianistic virtuosity, musical sensitivity and an interest in music going beyond the reachme-downs of the standard repertoire … The pieces and playing make the record very desirable” Gramophone Magazine (Kars)

“He attains a remarkably sustained intensity with some pages [of the ‘Dante’ Sonata] and the whole is extremely well integrated” Gramophone Magazine (Années de Pèlerinage)

Au bord d'une source (Années de pèlerinage I, S. 160 No. 4)


This, the forty-third volume (and sixty-fifth disc) in Leslie Howard's Liszt encyclopaedia, includes the Second Book of the composer's Années de Pèlerinage, a work which derives its considerable inspiration from the art and literature of Italy. Here we find the final versions of the three Petrarch Sonnets and the famous Dante Sonata.

Alongside these works we have Venezia e Napoli, an ingenious set of encore pieces, and the intriguing coda to Au bord d'une source (from the Swiss volume of the Années) which Liszt penned for the young Italian composer/pianist Giovanni Sgambati in 1863.

“This disc is studded with pleasures, even (especially in the Petrarch sonnets) with flashes of ecstasy. Fine sound too” Fanfare

“A familiar enough masterpiece yet typically spiced by Howard with some fascinating side-steps and discoveries” Gramophone Magazine

Roberto Cappello (piano)

This extraordinary double CD is a live recording dedicated to the great pianistic romanticism. Here we can clearly feel how much the Italian culture influenced the genius of Franz Liszt that transposed on his favorite instrument all the magic of the great opera (Verdi, Bellini, Donizetti), popular tradition (Venice and Naples) and classic literature (Dante, Petrarca). Literally enchanted by his Italian experience, Liszt composed music of rare effectiveness, masterfully interpreted by the talent of Roberto Cappello, pianist with transcendental technique and musicality.

The seeds were planted in the early 1970s when Deutsche Grammophon realised what amazing results could be achieved by recording on multi-channel tapes, using either four or eight channels. Yet, due to a few restrictions, they never fully blossomed. Flaws in the playback equipment meant that music connoisseurs were prevented from enjoying these recordings in the way that artists, producers, engineers and other professionals intended, even though recording technology was already way ahead of its time. Now — over a quarter of a century later — and thanks to the arrival of the multi-channel Super Audio CD, there is finally a system available which permits these precious recordings to be released in the quality they deserve. One of those precious recordings comes in the form of the Franz Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage II & Deux Légendes, which ranks among his most important works. Franz Liszt, the prodigious pianist, didn’t only draw his inspiration from art forms such as literature and visual arts, but also sought to collect them in a synaesthetic sense as a composer.

Wilhelm Kempff’s performance in this recording reflects all of those features engaged in detail in an exemplary manner. Referring specifically to Kempff’s non-bombastic Liszt, (Arthur) Brendel called them “the greatest we have”. In Kempff's hands, the pieces do indeed turn into a “pilgrimage” as the two Franciscan pieces integrate seamlessly into the journey. Get ready to follow the pilgrimage as it takes place.

Liszt:

Années de pèlerinage, 2ème année, Italie (7 pieces), S. 161

Piano Sonata in B minor, S178


Liszt’s complete musical style is evident in these works which range from virtuosic fireworks to sincerely moving, emotional statements. Liszt’s recollection of his travels through Italy refers to the sights and sounds that inspired and gave rise to some of his most evocative music… “Having recently traveled through different settings and places consecrated by history and poetry, having felt that the phenomena of nature did not pass before my eyes as pointless images, and that, between us a vague but immediate relationship had established itself, I have tried to portray in music a few of my strongest sensations and most lively impressions.”
