WARREN MAILLEY-SMITH

This impressive solo album of Liszt’s piano music is British pianist Warren Mailley-Smith’s most recent solo recording and was made to celebrate the composer’s bicentenary in 2011. The release includes a well-contrasted overview of a number of Liszt’s most popular and challenging works by the great Hungarian pianist and composer, including the devilish Mephisto Waltz No.1 and the wonderfully characterised Rigoletto Paraphrase, set against works such as the Consolation No.3 and Un Sospiro. Stand out tracks on the album include a finger-breaking rendition of the immortal Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 and a breathtaking account of the rarely performed Concert Study Il Lament’.
