Volodos Plays Liszt
Label: SONY CLASSICAL
With his long-awaited new album dedicated to Franz Liszt, Arcadi Volodos confirms his exceptional status as a pianist. Of course with pieces like the "Funérailles" or his own version of the "Hungarian Rhapsody" No. 13, in which he presents his phenomenal virtuosity. But it is as a thoughtful piano poet that Volodos demonstrates his true mastery on this album. Thus Volodos creates an arc from the 24-year-old Liszt to the composer marked by grief in his old age.
