The Long Ear

After an album devoted to Beethoven, Michel Dalberto returns to the world of Liszt, with the immense Sonata in B minor forming the centerpiece of his new recording. The composer was a visionary, but also a prodigious 'storyteller'. The French pianist's interpretation reveals both strands in the work, while also bringing out to the full the formidable, spectacular virtuosity of the four Études d'exécution transcendante and the poetic profundity of Vallée d'Obermann. This recording was made on a splendid Carl Bechstein piano in the auditorium of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris.
