Roberto Plano (piano)

For his debut on Decca, Plano has chosen a masterwork that is rarely performed, and that has not appeared in Universal’s catalogue for the last 50 years. This is the first complete recording of Harmonies poétiques and religieuses since France Clidat in the sixties.

Thanks to a very strong technique Roberto Plano has often been defined a virtuoso. But he is much more than that, and in fact it’s not virtuosity that is underlined in his performances of Liszt’s music, who remains one of his favourite composers.

Finalist in the Van Cliburn Competition 2005, Roberto Plano has since toured US extensively every year, as well as Europe. He has recently been appointed as piano professor by the Boston University, where he will start next September. His repertoire ranges from such discoveries as Luchesi’s Sonatas to romantic and twentieth century music.

“This Italian pianist showed artistic maturity beyond his years… there was a wonderful clarity and control of inner voices in his performances…” (NY Times) Plano has been described by The Chronicle in Glens Falls, NY, as the “Pavarotti of the Piano” for his lyricism, and also defined by the Chicago radio commentator Paul Harvey as the heir of Rubinstein and Horowitz.

(2 CDs – Short playing time on CD 2)

The Harmonies poétiques et religieuses is Franz Liszt’s most important piano cycle. The title refers to a collection of poems by the French romanticist Alphonse de Lamartine. Liszt’s religious orientation and the overall theme of poetic literature in his work are reflected in his many years of artistic occupation with this kindred spirit.

“it is in the grandes machines, the three big extended works that form the backbone of the Harmonies, that Korstick is at his most impressive. 'Benediction de Dieu dans la solitude' is spacious, questing yet disarmingly intimate” Gramophone Magazine, January 2016

A first volume (DSD350078) presented some among the most famous works by the Hungarian pianist-composer. This last volume proposes more mysterious pages, Mephistophelean with their dancing flavours, their satanic, doleful, gloomy, or oblivious aspects and with indelible threnodies… 2015 sees the centenary of the birth of Sviatoslav Teofilovich Richter widely considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, celebrated for the depth of his interpretations, virtuoso technique, and vast repertoire.

Yury Favorin (piano)

This cycle notably includes two of Liszt’s greatest masterpieces for the piano: the famous 'Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude', serene, warm, contemplative, recalling in many places his Sonata, and 'Funérailles' with its almost unbearable emotion. Yet it also includes less frequently played pieces such as the dark meditation that is 'Pensée des morts', the dreamy 'Cantique d’amour' and others based on rarely heard choral compositions of Liszt. A major album in the piano repertory, 'Harmonies poétiques et religieuses' is one of the most accomplished and individual of Franz Liszt’s works.

A revelation of the Queen Elisabeth Competition for piano, Yury Favorin is the ideal performer for this rarely recorded repertory.. In this, his first disc, this young Russian, who was unanimously praised by the press in 2010 (“undeniably one of the most powerful musicians, from all points of view, of the session” – La Libre), is at the dawn of a great career that has already taken him to many prestigious platforms, including that of La Roque d’Anthéron where he was a triumphal last minute replacement for Aldo Ciccolini.

“This is big-boned Liszt-playing, tough to interpret and admirably free from sentiment. There's no attempt at self-consciously flashy virtuosity. Funérailles is wonderfully stark and angry, while Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude...is all supercharged rapture.” The Guardian, 4th July 2013 ****

Pascal Amoyel (piano)

This reissue (Calliope) is a modern Lisztian landmark, with one of the finest readings of his 'Poetic and Religious Harmonies'. Pascal Amoyel is one of the few pianists to have understood the importance of this essentially declamatory music.

"Liszt's cycle Harmonies Poétiques et Religieuses has a special place in my repertoire. For years I've been studying it, watching it evolve, and continue to see it in a new light. And what child-like joy to rediscover works that one thought one knew well!

When I listen now to this recording made in 2007, I realize that an album is a snapshot of a precise moment and that this moment is itself already the benchmark of what one used to be and what one will become. Let's go even further: it's probably because it's "only" a snapshot that it's an authentic version. The present reissue recreates this type of fragility, a unique ephemeral moment of the creative act caught forever". Pascal Amoyel (June 2011)

Liszt:

Piano Sonata in B minor, S178

Harmonies poétiques et religieuses (10), S. 173


Zig-Zag Territoires begins its collaboration with the pianist François-Frédéric Guy, ‘an exceptional artist’ (Le Figaro, 2008), with two prestigious projects: the complete Beethoven piano sonatas recorded live at the Arsenal in Metz between December 2010 and December 2012, and a Liszt double album featuring two of that composer’s key works: the Sonata in B minor and the complete cycle of Harmonies poétiques et religieuses.

Zig-Zag Territoires wishes to accompany the development of this artist who first attracted attention with a ‘titanic “Hammerklavier” . . . [in which] we are in heaven’ (Le Monde, 1998), and has since marked his territory by ‘tackling the Everests of the repertoire’ (Libération, 2004): Brahms’s Second Concerto with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Paavo Berglund (Naïve, 2004), followed by the complete Beethoven piano concertos with Philippe Jordan and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (Naïve, 2008-10).

François-Frédéric Guy regularly performs the cycle of Harmonies poétiques et religieuses in concert, either as a solo recital or alongside the actress Marie-Christine Barrault who recites the Lamartine poems that inspired the composer.

We decided to record these masterpieces in the studio of La Chaux-de-Fonds (Switzerland), renowned for its exceptional acoustics. With the aim of reproducing the spontaneity of concert conditions, François-Frédéric Guy recorded the entire double album in just four days.

‘Recording the Harmonies Poétiques et religieuses represents a important moment in my artistic and discographic career, since Liszt is one of my favourite composers. It is certainly one of the finest cycles in the piano literature, made up of musical settings of the poems of Lamartine that combine grandiose inspiration and intimate meditation. As for the Sonata in B minor, in my view it constitutes the peak of the composer’s output and is still the only piano work that can follow on from Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier”.’ François-Frédéric Guy

“Guy's technique can match anybody's for firepower. He also offers moments of genuine revelation. I hadn't realised quite how thrilling an introduction to the cycle the opening Invocation can be; and while the Andante lagrimoso can sometimes seem a less than remarkable statement by Lisztian standards, Guy's searching way makes it more memorable.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2011 ****

“his Harmonies poetiques et religieuses achieves a magnificent sense of how Liszt extended the piano's and indeed music's poetic possibilities into a wholly new realm and dimension. He is enthralling in the "Invocation", most opulent of curtain-raisers, mystical in the "Ave Maria"...this is a true act of musical devotion” Gramophone Magazine, August 2011

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birth, this new format title (2 CDs + 50,000 word biography) explores the fascinating world of LIZST: HIS LIFE AND MUSIC.

Perhaps the greatest pianist who has ever lived, Liszt was one of the titanic musical figures of the Romantic age. Abandoning his spectacular career as a travelling virtuoso in his mid-thirties, this passionate lover and fond father dedicated himself instead to a life of composing, conducting, teaching and, increasingly, religious devotion, eventually taking minor orders in the Roman Catholic Church. This biography explores an enthralling life lived for long periods in France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and the composer’s native Hungary – a kaleidoscope of cultural worlds whose folk music, literature and landscapes richly coloured Liszt’s own music.

The 2 CDs feature music spanning Liszt’s career, and the free website www.naxosaudiobooks/lisztlifeandmusic offers hours of extra music and other bonus material.
