Liszt: Années De Pèlerinage (complete)
Label: Bridge Records
Jerome Lowenthal & Carmel Lowenthal, piano
Composed by: Franz Liszt
The American pianist Jerome Lowenthal has been known as a great exponent of Liszt for many decades, performing the the solo repertoire and concertos throughout the world in the most prestigious venues, and with the world's great orchestras and conductors. Now in his late-70s, Lowenthal has taken on the challenge of recording Liszt's great cycle, Années de pèlerinage. In addition to performing the complete "three years", Lowenthal plays the spectacular early version of Les Cloches de Geneva, and the appendix to the "Italian" book, Venezia e Napoli. As a bonus, Lowenthal is joined by his daughter, pianist Carmel Lowenthal, for a rare recording of the four-hand version of Books II and III of Liszt's charming Christmas Tree Suite. These other Jerome Lowenthal recordings are also available on Bridge: Tchaikovsky: The Music for Piano and Orchestra (with the London Symphony Orchestra, Sergiu Comissiona) BRIDGE 9301A/B; and Christian Sinding: Music for Piano BRIDGE 9306.
