Piano Concertos 1 & 2 / Totentanz - Liszt (determined that soloist & orch. play equal parts - 6500 374)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring the legendary pianist Alfred Brendel , backed by The London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink , in Early-Seventies recordings)

Franz Liszt (1811-86) was so determined, that both the soloist and orchestra should play equal parts in his first piano concerto, that it was more than a quarter of a century between the initial conception, and the final completion of the work (although it goes without saying, that Liszt worked on many other pieces during this time).

Liszt also took more than twenty years, to completely finish his Piano Concerto No.2 (with a number of years overlapping No.1's composition).

Side One : Piano Concerto No.2 in A, by Liszt :-
1) I Adagio sostenuto assai 2) II Allegro agitato assai 3) III Allegro moderato - Allegro deciso 4) IV Marziale un poco meno allegro 5) V Allegro animato.
Side One : Piano Concerto No.1 in E flat, by Liszt :-
6) I Allegro maestoso.
Side Two : Concerto No.1 (conclusion) :-
1) II Quasi adagio - Allegretto vivace - Allegro animato 2) III Allegro marziale animato.

"Totentanz" is a most idiosyncratic, not-to-mention remarkable piece by Liszt, which shows "music haunted by evil", a feeling for the devil and damnation. It could well have been inspired by a comment by Gregorovius, who witnessed Liszt's ultra-virtuosic playing of the piano, describing the Hungarian as "Mephistopheles disguised as an Abbe" (sic).
Side Two : 3) "Totentanz", by Liszt.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX+.
