Impromptus, Songs And Consolations: Works By Franz
Catalog: GEN 20556
Format: COMPACT DISC
The cosmopolitan Franz Liszt and the unpretentious Franz Schubert couldn't have been more unlike in terms of lives that they led. But with their musical oeuvre, they maintain a symbiotic relationship to this day: Schubert's works were always an inspiring, "magnificent treasure" to Liszt, which he was very fond of sharing with the world. Therefore, Liszt was an advocate of Schubert's reception wherever possible. On concert tours, he also always had Schubert's music with him, including many lieder as piano transcriptions. Viacheslav Apostel-Pankratowsky traces the synergies of this artistic alliance on his debut release with GENUIN: with exceptional reserve, energetic musical language, and warm nuance.
