BBC Music Magazine's '5 Essential Works by Franz Liszt' 2012 

Disc of the Month: 'Liszt with authority…his virtuoso credentials are impeccable.' BBC Music Magazine

'Mesmerising…a Liszt release made in heaven.' Classic FM

'A performance of formidable eloquence and achievement.' Gramophone

Recommended: 'Lazaridis easily slips into the top ranks with his finely recorded performance here.' Pianist Magazine  

 

Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor is one of the seminal works of the Romantic piano repertoire and one of the most technically challenging pieces any pianist can undertake. Continuing this virtuosic theme, and demonstrating his great ambition as a pianist of the highest calibre, Lazaridis also presents Liszt's Grandes études de Paganini. This six-part composition, based on themes originally composed for violin by Niccolò Paganini, again places huge demands on the technical and interpretive abilities of the performer. 

Originally released in 2006 Liszt: Sonatas and Etudes has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.

The power and ferocity of the climaxes are enough to make sure you've insured your loudspeakers and warned your neighbors! Clearly Lazaridis is no run-of-the-mill virtuoso, and we're sure to hear more from him.

Playful, deftly leggierissimo, and elegantly fluid, the piece lights on dragonfly wings then surges up a lion's paw.
