Dejan Lazic (piano)

Dejan Lazic; on this, his first album for ONYX, pays tribute to a composer and his legacy as a piano virtuoso, organist, improviser, arranger, conductor, teacher, author, philanthropist and traveller. Liszt lived life to the full, and this recital captures that love of life, his genius as a pianist and composer, a traveller with a restless and curious mind. Liszt’s respect for the music of other composers is to be found in his arrangements for piano of orchestral, operatic and other vocal works. From Wagner’s operas to Schubert Lieder via Beethoven Symphonies, his deep love for the music is apparent and such arrangements gave this music a wider audience in both the salons and domestic settings that lives on today.

"Embarking on a recording project like this obviously required a substantial amount of preparation time. But once the date has come it was of a tremendous importance to capture and to honour the spontaneity of Liszt’s versatile, eclectic, and revolutionary genius", writes Dejan in his introduction to the recital, captured at a live performance at Hohenhems, and one further day in studio conditions.

“To devise a programme encompassing multiple achivement aspects of the Liszt phenomenon is one thing. To deliver it with the kind of wide-ranging musicianship that's required is another, and Dejan Lazic achieves this remarkably...The recorded sound is seamless and immaculate throughout.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2017 ****

“Another valuable instalment in Howard's vast trek through Liszt's piano music” Classic CD

“Liszt's operatic outings range from literal transcriptions, such as the opening Oberon Overture, to the most free fantasias, like that on motives from Rienzi at the end of the disc. The sequence is artfully planned to provide the maximum contrast between Liszt as lion and dove, with four of the 16 items earmarked as 'first recordings'. Of these, the Gounod Roméo et Juliette Rêverie is a tender, nocturne-like idyll that not for a second outstays its welcome. Liszt scholars may nevertheless be still more grateful for Howard's rescue of the other three, and first and foremost the nearly 22-minute long Fantasia on themes from Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni. Though selfindulgently protracted, its thematic interweavings en route still take your breath away. With Verdi and Wagner we're on more familiar ground, where it goes without saying that Howard has formidable CD rivals. But throughout the disc there's a spaciousness in his characterisation that far more often than not compensates for momentary technical strain or loss of finesse. His tonal range is certainly wide, ranging from the deep, dark, brooding intensity he finds for the Ernani and Il trovatore excerpts to his translucent delicacy in the upper reaches of Gounod's Rêverie. Apart from a slightly metallic touch above a certain dynamic level in the treble, the recorded sound quality can best be described in a nutshell as ripe.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Count Antonio Freschi belonged to a fringe of Friuli nobility. Antonio Bazzini, teacher and friend of the count, said of him: “I assure you that he plays the violin and sings at the same time in a way that few others could.” The pieces included in this release could only partially be considered romances and Salonmusik: complicating the placement and classification of Freschi’s and Bazzini’s compositions is their frequent propensity for extreme virtuoso violin writing that was not suited for a setting of amateur Hausmusik. They are works which are quite short, very melodic and easy and accessible for the listener, but demand high technical ability and therefore require competent performers.

Caroline Fischer (piano)

Other musicians of her age are still regarded as insider’s tips. The young German-Korean concert pianist Caroline Fischer, however, has already proven herself on international concert stages for years and has many awards to her name. Her talent and musical maturity also stand out in this, her third Genuin release, completely devoted to repertoire that some people dismiss as “virtuoso”. Fischer brings out the enormous musical richness and sensual sound in these brilliant works by Lyapunov and Moszkowski, von Weber and Saint-Saëns – not to mention Liszt, Chopin, and Beethoven – with precision and charm. Great piano playing in miniature gems!

A Steinway artist, Sergio Gallo specialises in the repertoire of the Romantic period, especially Liszt and his contemporaries, including Schumann, Henselt, Brahms and Chopin. He has also championed the work of Brazilian composers, the nation of his birth. Gallo has recorded several acclaimed CDs for Eroica, with forthcoming projects committed to the Naxos and Naxos Grand Piano labels. His recordings have received high praise from Gramophone magazine (of his most recent Villa-Lobos recording: “splendid playing of a lively programme… [a] nuanced performance… played with exceptional artistry”) and American Record Guide (“it is hard to imagine a pianist leaving me with a more intense feeling of nobility”).

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.
